The firm acts for a wide range of private, commercial and institutional clients who value the team’s personal and proactive service and outstanding communication skills.

James Nethercot leads a team of sought-after property lawyers with exceptional expertise honed over many years in a busy central London practice. The team members are frequently described as ‘safe pairs of hands’ – an invaluable quality in the fast paced transactional property market – and the property team enjoys a very high level of client loyalty.
