We constantly strive to add value to everything we do, this includes:

  • Developing close relationships with our clients in order to achieve a thorough understanding of your business and objectives
  • Working closely with our clients’ other professional advisors, often project managing the initiative with the surveyors, architects, planning consultants, construction teams, accountants and bankers
  • We seek to proactively advise clients to help you navigate potential issues before they become major challenges


Coffin Mew LLP handles property development projects, property investment work and landlord and tenant matters for an impressive range of clients. It often works in conjunction with its corporate and insolvency teams and is also acting increasingly for rural estates and farms. Recent work includes assisting the Roquebrook Group on the acquisition of sites for mixed-use, commercial and residential development in London, which involved obtaining planning permission as well as advising on securing funding from a number of lenders and private equity investors. The team is also acting for a farm owner on the sale of land to a national house builder for the construction of 450 houses and other infrastructure, a matter which has involved public consultations. Nick Leavey is the experienced practice head and Amanda Read, Peter Fellows, David Thomas and Malcolm Poynter are other key names.
