Consultant Solicitor : Commercial Property
Andrew did not get to live his dream as a professional cricketer. In truth, he didn’t really make it as an amateur either but what he did develop was a real skill for watching the game. His ability to watch four days of cricket and not miss a ball has transferred to real-life where he is a commercial property solicitor with keen attention to detail. Andrew knows that building and maintaining relationships with clients is key to getting the right deal done and is always happy to talk commercial property – in fact, anything to do with real estate – if you really want to listen (if you do get bored you can direct the conversation to cricket). He buys into the Newport philosophy of talking plain English and leaving the legal jargon to conversations with other lawyers.
With an extensive range of Landlord and tenant, development and property finance experience gained from working on the high street, in international law firms, and various sized firms in between, it is likely that Andrew can bring that experience to assist with your commercial property transaction. With his landlord and tenant hat on Andrew has specialised in the retail (shopping centres, high street retailers, supermarkets), telecoms sectors (mobile phone operators) licenced premises, sports clubs and industrial premises. He has advised house builders and speculative developers on development projects and been on both sides in finance and re-financing transactions.
Whether you need a short-term lease of a corner shop, managing the largest shopping centre in the country or refinancing an extensive property portfolio you will get the same level of service and attention. Outside of the office, Andrew is a keen cyclist, loves live music and watches the odd bit of cricket (for days on end).
