London, United Kingdom
Legal Advisory Services
These are ‘unprecedented times’,says property lawyer Thomas Moran. ‘The lockdown must be the first time in history that the government advised people to stop buying and selling property.’
Even so, Moran and his team have kept busy. As the firm switched to working from home, Moran was in demand from clients looking to complete deals that had already been agreed. Moran completed instructions on behalf of UHNWs, including one of the most expensive tenancies in London history.
Regarded for both his intellect and easy-going manner, Moran regularly acts for both UK and overseas clients in buying and selling residential and agricultural property, as well advising on high-end landlord and tenant matters.
He tells Spear’s that no single day at the firm is the same, with clients that come ‘in all shapes and sizes’ keeping him interested in his work.
In line with Charles Russell Speechlys’ joined-up offer, Moran works closely with his colleagues in the onshore and international tax departments, with the aim of providing an integrated service to the modern international family.
‘Our aim is to deliver the ultimate excellent property service to our clients as part of a market-leading private wealth offering,’ he adds.
After all that work in lockdown, does he anticipate a break any time soon? Not quite. ‘As you’d expect the announcement of the stamp duty holiday has prompted a boom for clients buying and selling outside of central London,’ he says.
