Very sound instincts and good sense of when to run an argument and when to let it go.
Andrew Chesser of Withers LLP regularly advises on landlord and tenant disputes. He also advises a range of developers and landowners. He is considered "superb" by his clients and heads the firm's real estate disputes team.
I have worked with Andrew for many years on a number of complex commercial and landlord and tenant matters. I have always found him to be clear in his advice, quick to respond and steady under pressure. Andrew is a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his team.
We have worked with Andrew for over 15 years on a number of contentious matters and have been grateful for his experience and consistent and loyal support, which enabled us to work through some very difficult times. We were pleased to be able to move to Withers with Andrew two years ago and have continued to work with him and his colleagues in corporate, banking and finance and real estate on our recent acquisition of the Whittlebury Hall lease, which proved to be considerably more complex than anticipated, but the team all worked well together well to achieve the desired result.
Me in a minute
I enjoy the personal interaction and working relationships that I have built up
Before joining Withers I had a three-month sabbatical during which I sailed across the South Atlantic as part of a round-the-world yacht race. This has given me a 'new lease of life' to tackle the great variety of problems which come across my desk.
