    Alastair applies his extensive expertise to the benefit of his clients. He has practiced as a property lawyer for almost 20 years and combines this with a wealth of other experience such as chairing major planning committees and non-executive property roles, with several billion pounds of UK property held in the entities that he helps to oversee.

    His reputation has been won on the basis of his commercial and collaborative approach and his ability to steer transactions to a positive outcome. He is surrounded by a close-knit and skilful team who are as approachable as he is.

    Alastair is a well-known figure in the London property scene and as such is always in demand for his views and counsel.

    Outside of the office, Alastair undertakes a number of public roles, which he finds immensely rewarding.
