Royds Withy King strengthens Residential Property team with partner appointment
Mark Scott joined Royds Withy King in our London office in May 2021 from Blake Morgan where he was a legal director and head of the London residential property team. He was previously a lawyer at Mishcon de Reya.
Mark brings to Royds Withy King a 30-year track record in buying and selling prime residential in London, acting for wealthy individuals both in the UK and overseas, investors, private banks and family offices. He is well known for his efficient and pragmatic approach to transactions with a strong track record in maintaining high levels of service.
Royds Withy King's 60-strong Residential Property, Farms & Estate team operates from its offices in London, Bath, Oxford and Swindon.
Commenting on his appointment, Mark said: "The past 16 months have been a particularly challenging environment for businesses and the people they employ. Yet the residential property market has held up and remains strong with encouraging forecasts for the year ahead and beyond. The demand for prime residential property both in central London and across the South East remains high and will continue as we emerge from the Covid pandemic. I am thrilled to be joining the team and look forward to contributing to the continued growth of the residential property practice."
Andrew Chalk, Partner and Head of Residential Property at Royds Withy King said: "Mark is a talented lawyer with a deep understanding of the prime London market. He is extremely well-connected and strong relationships with agents, private banks, family offices and investors. We look forward to working alongside him as the practice continues to grow."
The appointment of Mark follows the appointment of three further partners in May – property litigation partner Angela Gregson, family law partner Jayne Martin, and personal injury partner Sara Wolf.
