David Hextall


David provides commercially-focused advice on all aspects of commercial property transactions including leasehold and freehold, landlord and tenant, sales, purchases, secured lending, corporate support and development work.

With 25 years of experience of working for property clients, he finds achieving successful outcomes for them to be highly rewarding, particularly when dealing with high value and complex commercial property transactions.

He really enjoys the work he does, and this translates into a real commitment to get the job done and do it well. David approaches all deals in the same way – with an open mind and an enthusiasm to make it work.

  • "Having a very well regarded reputation across the city, David was recommended to me by a number of different sources. David’s experience and technical ability is second to none coupled with being the most efficient solicitor that I have ever worked with. This has helped me enormously with some very challenging transactions. It would fair to say that many transactions would have failed if it wasn’t for David’s dedication, and as a result he brings much more than just the security of the job being done correctly. He is a key member of our team. Many thanks David and long may our working relationship continue"
