Recommended in the Legal 500 2020

Graham helps clients buy, sell, develop and let Real Estate, domestically and cross-border (on dry land and in the seabed).  He relocates corporate HQs, acts on commercial transactions where Real Estate is business-vital and manages all-asset Real Estate and Energy investments.  Clients rely on Graham's personable and commercially direct approach.  If you want a lawyer that thrives on project management, risk-analyses points you should take and leave and avoids needless back and forth between counterparts, why not get in touch to see what Graham can bring to your business?    

Graham acted on London's newest skyscraper (currently under construction). He's development-funded distribution centres across the country (public and private sector), bought and sold trophy offices for a leading UK investor, let a ground-up scheme in London's west end for a JV, asset managed an offshore energy portfolio and helped a globally iconic brand buy into a UK premium F&B business. 

Graham's three recommendations in the Legal 500 are testament to the feedback, reliance and trust that clients place in his ability to deliver in a way that exceeds their expectations.
