Robert Bowker has over 20 years’ experience in property-related work.

He was called to the Bar in 1995 and completed pupillage in Chambers in 1997. From 1997 to 2007, he practised in Chambers exclusively in property litigation. Between 2007 and 2012, he practised as a solicitor and barrister in Australia primarily in construction litigation (he is dual-qualified; England/Wales and Australia). In 2012 he returned to Chambers and resumed his practice exclusively in property litigation.

Robert’s practice combines commercial property, residential property, including service charges and enfranchisement, and real property.

A significant proportion of Robert's work involves dilapidations, major contracts and the recovery of costs through service charge. He has worked with a wide range of experts including surveyors, structural engineers, M&E consultants and valuers.

He recently represented the successful applicant in FirstPort v Lessees of Citiscape, Croydon which determined liability for the cost of replacement ACM cladding.

He is a regular conference speaker.
