Spearing Waite LLP fields a ‘top-flight’ practice that is ‘extremely capable and very diligent’. The team acts for commercial and residential clients on portfolio management and restructuring transactions, real estate finance and plot sales, in addition to having a strong track record advising investor and developer clients. The practice was bolstered by the recruitment of planning and environment specialist Pritpal Singh Swarn from Wright Hassall LLP. Other key figures include senior partner and practice head Tom Bower and Karen Herbert, who are noted for their ‘knowledge and tenacity’; Richard Wyvill, who is ‘an experienced shopping centre expert’; and Satpaul Dard , who is ‘incredibly fast-working whilst maintaining an excellent level of detail and service’. Dard recently led advice for Blue Inc on the acquisition of the business and assets of A. Levy & Son involving 125 prime leasehold properties from the company’s administrators. Erin Vickers and Siobhan Smyth are also recommended.
