Moi en une minute

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

Being the son of a property agent, I was introduced to London residential property very early on in my career and I have enjoyed developing my knowledge of the market and the property industry as a whole. I am fortunate to act for sophisticated families and investors from all over the world in an exciting market on transactions that continually throw up interesting, varied and complex legal issues.
