Simon Pring property lawyer

Simon has over 30 years’ experience in advising major institutions, charities and private estates on all aspects of property law. He is renowned for his strategic thinking and ability to guide clients through complex property transactions.

Simon provides guidance on all areas of land ownership and coordinates advice on the many legal requirements of a modern landed estate. He typically works with individual landowners, as well as in-house solicitors, estate surveyors and property investment teams within institutions and charities.

He is an acknowledged expert in property matters with a particular focus on agricultural and rural development. He regularly coordinates large complex projects that draw on the firm’s extensive property team, as well as other specialisms across the firm relating to areas such as tax and corporate transactions.

Simon’s track record in the sector means he has a far reaching professional network encompassing leading land agents, accountants and financial consultants. His clients include The Duchy of Lancaster and the Church Commissioners for England.

His focus on building long-term client relationships means he is able to establish a detailed knowledge of individual estates, their specific challenges and broader operational context, all of which can be brought to bear when providing advice.

Given the current housing shortfall, Simon is increasingly advising clients on the viability of residential schemes, planning issues, Section 106 agreements and ensuring estates make best use of what could be a once-in-a-generation opportunity.

Clients benefit from his no nonsense, commercial approach and Simon is well known for helping clients navigate their way through major decisions while striking the right balance between their current and future needs.

Simon qualified as a solicitor in 1988.
