Expert Legal Advice From Real Estate Litigation Specialists In The City Of London

William Lawrence

I founded WH Lawrence Solicitors in January 2013. Since qualifying in the mid-1990s, I have acted almost exclusively as a property litigator. I spent the early part of my career at national firm, Eversheds in Manchester before moving to London to work at City practice, SJ Berwin until 2006.

Following a short stint in the West End, I joined national firm Hammonds (now Squire Patton Boggs) heading their London property litigation practice as a Partner. My clients range from commercial landlords and commercial tenants, to high net worth individuals and charities, all with property interests throughout the country.
