David joined Lawrence Stephens as a Partner in September 2019 and contributes over 30 years of legal experience to our Real Estate/Secured Lending team. Over the years, he has established a proactive, can-do attitude to meeting clients’ objectives; offering a level of service which, given his number of repeat clients, has clearly proven attractive.
David acts for a range of leading UK specialist bridging finance lenders, providing extensive advice on property finance, landlord and tenant and commercial conveyancing matters. As well as advising on the acquisition, disposal and letting of commercial property and commercial property management.
At his previous firm, he won the best legal bridging law firm partner at the Bridging and Commercial Awards in 2010; came highly commended in that category in the Bridging and Commercial Finance Awards in 2013 and was awarded the UK Bridge Finance Service Provider of the Year in the Finance Awards 2013. He is also a member of the Association of Short Term Lenders.
David’s clients are predominantly made up of established lenders in the bridging finance or property lending market and long standing private property investors. These range from clients with large Central London holdings to those with portfolios of shops, offices and industrial units. The variety offers a significant volume of work, but also provides the opportunity to establish close personal relationships with individual underwriters.
Lawrence Stephens’ cohort of long-suffering Spurs supporters welcomes David with wide open arms, though he also enjoys tennis, cricket and bridge, and is an avid cinema and theatre goer. When he isn’t working, David involves himself in charity work to provide holiday opportunities to under-privileged children.
