Meet Rhiannon Evans, Hillyer McKeown Commercial Litigation Solicitor

My expertise includes working with large limited companies, small and medium sized businesses (SMEs), partnerships, LLPs, sole traders and consumers. My focus is always to achieve the best outcome for my clients’ disputes, before or after the issue of court proceedings in the most cost effective manner.

The breadth of disputes I deal with include the following:

  • Breach of contract claims.
  • Company/shareholder disputes.
  • Property disputes (commercial and residential) including:
    • Breach of covenant
    • Possession and forfeiture proceedings.
  • Contentious probate.
  • Negligence claims.

Experience in litigation

I predominantly represent businesses in both an advisory and litigious capacity. This often concerns problems with contracts such as breach and termination, according to contractual provisions and the client’s key objectives. I also have experience acting in proceedings involving a breach of warranty on the sale/purchase of a company. My expertise extends to providing advice during each stage of litigation, from pre-action correspondence to the appeals process.

I am a specialist in the residential landlord and tenant sector. This includes the following:

  • mainly acting for landlords in possession proceedings (defended and non-defended)
  • advising on the consequences of not complying with strict legislation
  • dealing with residential and commercial boundary disputes
  • handling breach of covenant claims
  • dealing with damages due to a breach.

I joined Hillyer McKeown in September 2018 when I qualified as a Commercial Litigation Solicitor, having completed my LPC with a distinction in June 2018.

I have a background in commercial and property litigation, having completed the majority of my training contract and paralegal experience in the litigation department, in addition to working in the commercial property and family departments.


Outside of work

I enjoy socialising, particularly in Manchester with friends. I also enjoy skiing wherever the snow is good, which is usually Verbier in Switzerland where I spent a ski season.
