Nicholas Vaughan

Partner | London

Nicholas is a partner in the real estate team.

His main areas of practice are acquisitions and disposals of both commercial and residential property as well as landlord and tenant work. He has particular expertise acting for overseas investors from Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia who acquire prime London residential property. He advises on all aspects of residential property including purchase and sale, refinancing, restructuring, lease extensions and freehold claims.

Nicholas speaks fluent Italian and, as a result, assists many of the firm’s Italian resident and non-resident clients to purchase residential property in London. He is also part of the Italian team, set up to maintain the high level of service that is provided to our Italian clients.

Me in a minute

I love the London property market and the industry as a whole

Being the son of a residential property agent, I was introduced to London property from a very early age. I now specialise in all aspects of residential property law.

My mother is Italian. Luckily, she taught me to speak fluent Italian, which means that I now have the wonderful opportunity to speak to my Italian clients about property law in Italian.

I love the London property market and the industry as a whole. I am fortunate to act for sophisticated families and investors from all over the world in an exciting market that throws up interesting, varied and complex legal issues on a daily basis.
