Paddy Lynam

Description

Spear's Review

Paddy Lynam is a rising star partner in BDB Pitmans’ private real estate team and has acted on some of the biggest estate, farm and bloodstock transactions in the country. Career highlights include the sale of a £40 million plus Surrey estate, the creation of a farming partnership to hold land on behalf of trustees and the purchase of a complex £16 million plus farm in Oxfordshire with various residential, commercial and agricultural tenancies.

Lynam’s family background in the horse racing industry has been helpful in connecting with clients, and has also contributed to his hobbies outside of work. When not present at these legendary courses, he 'cheers in front of the TV’ at The Turf Club, for whom he is the retained lawyer.

Adviser Profile

"Paddy Lynam is a partner in BDB Pitmans' private real estate team. He acts on some of the largest estate, farm and bloodstock transactions in England and Wales. Paddy also works closely with BDB Pitmans' tax, trusts and estate planning team in relation to the capital tax planning and administration of estates, where specific treatment of his client's land portfolios need consideration.

Bolstered by memberships of professional bodies, Paddy is a member of the Agricultural Law Association and The Thoroughbred Breeders Association.

'I enjoy acting for landowners and helping them with the numerous challenges that running an estate brings. It is hugely satisfying to help our clients identify farming, diversification and development opportunities which are sensitive to any given client estate,' he says.

Asked about his guiding principles, he adds: 'I try and model myself in the traditional role of being a trusted and committed adviser to my clients and their families, and being the first person they think of if they have an issue.

'The key approach is to always look for solutions, not questions. And, with high values on tight time-frames, one needs to identify what really is important, especially when it is all about getting a client ""from A to B"", regardless of the size of the instruction'. This is one of the traits that clients and peers find most admirable about him.

His family background in the horse racing industry has been helpful in connecting with clients, and has also contributed to his hobbies outside of work. 'This is, of course, my first love and you can always find me on the course at Newmarket or Goodwood,' he says.

When not present at these legendary courses, he 'cheers in front of the TV' at The Turf Club, for whom he is the retained lawyer."
