David Scarrott

Senior Associate, Solicitor, Head of Disputes & Litigation

David is a solicitor and manages our Disputes and Litigation team. Having obtained his degree in law from the University of Exeter, he qualified in 2003 and went on to work at a regional firm in the South West.

Having joined Wolferstans in 2016, David took over the management of the team in 2017, supervising our solicitors, Legal Executives and paralegals within the department. Whilst he has experience across a range of civil litigation, David now specialises almost exclusively in complicated property related disputes, an area which has been the focus of his work since he qualified.

Acting for individuals, companies and charities, David frequently deals with disputed rights of way, boundary problems, co-ownership disputes and commercial landlord and tenant matters, including actions for breach of covenant and possession proceedings.

Whilst he is an experienced litigator, David always aims to find early practical and commercial ways of resolving disputes in appropriate cases with a view to helping his clients to resolve their claims cost effectively.

Outside work, David enjoys running and going to the gym to keep fit.
