Robert has lived and breathed law for as long as he can remember. His father was a barrister and he spent his childhood living just a stone’s throw away from the Royal Courts of Justice in London’s illustrious legal quarter, the Temple. He joined Royds, now Royds Royds Withy King, as an Articled Clerk in 1967 and has worked in the Property team for more than 20 years.
In addition to Monsoon, Robert’s other important clients include other retailers, educational and religious institutions, banks and charities. He also acts for a number of London restaurateurs and well known entities in the art world. His expertise is complemented by the fact that he takes a real interest in all of his clients.
Robert’s expertise includes:
- portfolio investment work
- land development
Robert led the acquisition for a major Paddington development and more recently he clinched the deal to acquire the site for the Monsoon headquarters near Shepherds Bush which has been the subject of further extensions for ongoing mixed use development.
Outside of work, Robert’s interests include cycling and sailing.
