Les advises landlords and tenants of commercial property and he has built up relationships with providers of residential property. He is regularly invited to make presentations to private landlord associations and works with a number of social landlords on the tricky aspects of their housing management operations.
He has particular proficiency in advising social clubs, community interest companies and the operators of pubs and those in the hospitality industry.
Those engaged in farming have found this solicitor to be sympathetic to the changing demands of their businesses, diligent in advising on leasing matters and aware of developing laws on environmental issues.
In recent years Les’ interest in education-related matters has developed further, particularly in providing advice to parents.
Les is a part-time Judge and an Associate Lecturer in Law.
Out of hours he enjoys being with his family and live theatre, being an enthusiastic talent-spotter each year at the Edinburgh Fringe.
