Molly Frankham


As a solicitor working within the Dispute Resolution team in Colchester, I deliver practical and straightforward advice to clients in a wide range of disputes. I am based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217617.

I have a particular interest and specialism in property litigation and regularly deal with all manner of property disputes including, but not limited to, commercial and residential tenancy disputes, boundary disputes, land and building disputes and disputes relating to rights and easements.

I also have a keen interest in contractual disputes and regularly advise clients on the viability of ending all types of contractual relationships.

I am a Trustee of an Essex-based charity called Outhouse East, which delivers support and counselling for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Dispute Resolution team adds value by ensuring that time is taken at the outset of a matter to understand a client’s specific objectives, and then giving clear, practical advice tailored to that client’s particular circumstances and objectives.

We provide a personal, attentive service, offering good availability and speed of response. We are informal where appropriate, whilst always professional. We have great strength and depth in numbers, with a wide range of experience, enabling clients and their issues to be matched to the most appropriate lawyer. We have lawyers who are true specialists in their chosen fields. We offer flexible funding arrangements, we enjoy excellent relations with assorted leading barristers’ chambers, enabling us to secure the most appropriate counsel on the best possible terms for our clients.
