John MorrisonPenningtons Manches Cooper LLP

Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP‘s team has been occupied by a high volume of COVID-related work, advising its sizeable retail and leisure client base on a litany of business-critical landlord and tenant matters, including break options, early lease terminations and insolvencies. Contested lease renewals on behalf of office and industrial property clients have similarly proven to be a burgeoning source of work. Practice head John Morrison handles the full range of commercial and residential disputes, most notably for educational institutes and life sciences companies in and around Oxford. Amy Evans is noted for her niche agricultural focus, and often works with the firm’s social housing team, advising various housing associations on statutory lease extensions, enfranchisements and rights of first refusal. Roberta Bombaci is recommended for her experience in easement disputes and TOLATA cases. All named lawyers are based in Oxford.
