Sonal Thakrar

Description

Spear's Review

Sonal Thakrar qualified at Pearson Lowe before moving to Charles Russell Speechlys, where she became a partner in 2008. She joined Mishcon de Reya in 2010, where she has built a diverse client base including overseas investors, HNW individuals, trustees and banks.

One client has described Thakrar as ‘the best real estate solicitor one can possibly bump into’. She credits such testimony to a ‘commercial eye that saves delicate transactions from falling apart’ and an understanding of ‘the challenges that the current market presents’.

Thakrar prides herself on an ability to think laterally and solve problems. ‘I get told that I always deliver without cutting corners,’ she says.
