    Real Estate

    Prior to qualification in law 2001, Mick’s business experiences as CEO in precision jewellery manufacturing and retail business, thereafter a supervisor in the oil industry asset refurbishment and safety (subcontracted to Shell Oil), then later one of the UK’s first agents for Landmark Property Environmental Search providers, all provide him with a commercial and practical approach in understanding his clients requirements and expectations, but also their concerns.

     

    With a myriad of experience in large scale developments, complex title assemblies via options, corporate support in a variety of mergers and acquisitions, real estate finance, leisure and hospitality projects including a variety of smaller scale development projects for family based developers, Mick is ideally positioned to support all levels of commercial property transactions.

     

    In recent years, Mick has worked in Shanghai as supervisor in overseeing a PRC EJV venture relating to the polymerisation and cast line production of very high specification polymer films for use by international pharmaceutical companies. This role included instructing international law and accountancy firms in Shanghai, and monitoring the construction and commissioning of two manufacturing facilities north of Shanghai from land acquisition to handover.

     

    More recently dealing with real estate investments in Spain, Mick dealt with the formation of two real estate Sociedad Limitada (SL) companies in Mallorca, engaged in negotiating the acquisition of high value front line residential development sites, instructing and overseeing Spanish legal, architectural and construction firms in enhancing value through planning gain, resolution of boundary/environmental issues and preparation for development thereafter.

     

    Upon returning to his home county of Cheshire, Mick has returned to private practice and prides himself in providing clear, pragmatic and commercial advice supporting his real estate clients during a very exciting and dynamic period of growth within the UK.

    • Advising LPA receivers and mortgagees in possession in respect of the sale of repossessed properties.
