A commercial and pragmatic approach to problem solving

Finding a solution for a client that is not just the legal answer, but a commercial and pragmatic one that will really benefit them, is enormously rewarding and something that drives Lewis in his approach to client work.

Lewis is motivated by learning about his client’s needs, so that he can  become an integral part of their team and more easily find solutions to any problems they face.

There is often a need for urgency in litigation, which can be challenging, but by working cohesively with his clients as well as joining forces with lawyers from across the firm, Lewis strives to deliver the best possible solution.

Lewis is a natural problem solver and enjoys the opportunity to find tangible solutions to problems that working in real estate litigation presents.
