Tim is a Partner and head of our commercial property team
When did you join Greene & Greene and what is your current role?
I joined Greene & Greene in October 2014. I became a Partner in 2016 and Head of Commercial Property in 2021.
Please tell us about your career to date
I studied Law at University then completed the LPC before joining a regional firm in the South to complete my training contract. I initially thought I would become a family lawyer but soon realised dealing with family conflict and the fact I looked about 12 at the time would go against me should I continue on this path. I soon changed direction and qualified into the Commercial Property team. I gained experience in a couple of firms around the South London area before relocating.
What attracted you to join the firm?
As a family we decided to relocate to Suffolk in 2014. During my search, I was offered a position at two other well-known firms in the area, but Greene & Greene drew me in. The young, dynamic partnership coupled with their reputation for excellent, city standard work really appealed to me. It was clear that this was a firm that could offer me a long-term career with clear progression goals.
Describe a typical day
I try and start the day with any urgent matters that have deadlines looming. As property lawyers we tend to be just one part of an ever-moving picture meaning things can change quickly. Everyone knows buying and selling property is a stressful time so making sure we meet our clients’ needs and expectations can be challenging but I am fortunate to be part of an excellent team who support each other. My work can be varied, ranging from high value residential properties to assisting property developers on both commercial and residential matters.
Is there anything you would like to say to prospective employees?
Greene & Greene have always been a friendly, hardworking and inclusive firm. Since the pandemic, flexible working has been fully embraced and long gone are any notions of a ‘stuffy old law firm’. The standard of work is incredibly high and we pride ourselves on offering a City rate service. There are fantastic career opportunities available along with the chance to work with and learn from some seriously talented individuals.Learn more about Tim
