James Fownes - Shakespeare Martineau LLP

Within: Property litigation

Shakespeare Martineau LLP 'provides excellent support, and is proactive, very responsive and understanding of clients’ economic needs’. Martin Edwards advises Workspace on terminating telecoms base station leases in order to redevelop a central London site for residential uses, and continues to handle all of Vision Express’ landlord and tenant disputes such as lease renewals and break notices. Mark English also handles heavyweight work. Associate partner James Fownes is ‘very service-oriented and looks for the best legal and pragmatic solutions’: he represented Farmfoods in a lease renewal case, in which the landlord reneged on an agreement for a ten year lease and insisted on rolling one-year terms. The firm also acts for Statera Energy.
