The purchase and sale of commercial property lies at the heart of a successful business community. Such deals are often worth tens, even hundreds, of millions of pounds and the lawyers involved must be experts in their field.
Tom is widely recognised as one of Scotland’s top property lawyers. He has recently represented clients in some of the country’s largest commercial property transactions, including the purchase of two major shopping centres, a multi-leisure development and high street shops with a combined value of around £600 million.
It is a big responsibility to negotiate such multi-million pound property deals which is one of the reasons Tom enjoys his work. He is also a modern lawyer who recognises the value of applying the latest technology when undertaking legal work on highly complex deals.
Tom studied Law at the University of Strathclyde and, having enjoyed a highly successful career, is a senior Property Partner in the award-winning international law firm, Pinsent Masons..
