Dion is a hands on lawyer who leads negotiations and manages deals from development joint ventures though development leasing and funding to complex sales and purchases. He is an industry leader having been one of the architects of the Model Commercial Lease and currently leading the charge with Government on L&T Act Reform.

He breaks down complexity wherever he finds it, innovating where necessary and tries to make the deal experience a constructive and enjoyable one.
He has worked for the private sector and for public bodies for his entire career. Highlights includes the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, moving the BBC to Media City in Salford and selling Television Centre for them. Selling Wapping for News Group and then moving News Corp into Thomas More Square pending taking all of The News Building at London Bridge coincided with acting for CMS Cameron McKenna taking their space at Cannon Street.

Dion appreciates that, with many complex deals, there can be many stakeholders. He has found over the years that no one solution fits all situations and he is therefore pragmatic and flexible as to how to engage, risk analyse, project manage, effectively communicate, recommend and report.
Dion Panambalana is absolutely fantastic, both in his professionalism but also in his commitment and interest in the project he is working on.
