Chambers Top Ranked UK 2024 | Andrew Chalmers The Legal 500 United Kingdom | Recommended Lawyer 2024

I’m the firm’s Managing Partner and this involves chairing the firm’s Executive Group, steering the strategic development of the firm, overseeing its implementation and representing the firm externally.

My main areas of work include advising clients on a wide range of real estate developments and investments across a number of market sectors including hotels, offices, industrial, retail and leisure.

There’s often an international dimension to my work and I enjoy dealing with companies and lawyers from many different countries.

As a co-founder of the firm over 25 years ago it’s very important to me that, with my name over the door, everything we do is of a quality of which I can be proud.
