Myles’s priority is getting the right results for his real estate clients.  He uses his acute commercial awareness, critical drafting and strong communication skills to ensure that advice is tailored and informative but easy to digest.

Myles enjoys working closely with clients from start to finish listening to their concerns and understanding what’s important for their business.  Myles focuses on taking the stress out of transactions for his clients by finding practical solutions and guiding clients through their matters as efficiently as possible.


Whilst in his Real Estate seat a large leasehold management company commented, “well done with this matter, I know this one has been challenging” while working on a time-sensitive licence to assign.

Case studies

Providing a new lease of life

When a lease opportunity finally arose for the client at the eleventh hour, documents were drafted urgently, accurately and tailored to their specific needs.

Myles has amassed a wealth of experience in real estate law, having spent a total of a year in the specialist team as a trainee and choosing to remain in the Real Estate team on qualification as a solicitor. Myles also worked in the audit industry during a previous life and has completed a master’s in business and management which helped to develop his commercial acumen and business sense.

Myles advises on various aspects of commercial property matters including landlord and tenant, acquisitions and disposals and investment and development opportunities.  Whilst Myles enjoys advising on different sectors, he specialises in leisure and hospitality, industrial and strategic land/development.  Myles has a keen interest in the life sciences and education sectors and is keen to grow these sector offerings, often working with colleagues from other departments within the firm.

Outside work, Myles is an avid Norwich City fan and a budding golfer.  He also enjoys travelling, an interest which originated out of a year he spent living in Lyon, France where he studied French law.

Some of Myles’ recent transactions include:

  • The acquisition and disposal of complex property/development set ups including those subject to leasehold interests, mixed-use and sub-sales.
  • Working for tenants in relation to leases of premises for well-known restaurant chains and apparel brands.
  • Multi-million-pound strategic land option agreements for landowners and developers over agricultural land and mixed-use buildings
  • In respect of small to medium size residential development sites including site set up, drafting contracts and ancillary agreements and financing.
