Malcolm Hemmings-Portas

Associate Solicitor

I qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and I joined Crane & Staples in 2014 as an Associate in the Commercial Property Department.

I have broad experience dealing with a range of aspects of Commercial Property, with particular emphasis on development projects.

My expertise includes:-

• acting for developers in relation to site acquisitions by way of option agreements and contracts, conditional upon obtaining planning consent and negotiating planning agreements with the local authorities.

• acquisition and disposal of Commercial Property, acting for property investors, owner-occupiers, developers and pension schemes and dealing with both corporate clients and private individuals.

• commercial leases, and having acted for both landlords and tenants, I am able to adopt a balanced approach to the negotiation of lease agreements.

Outside the office

I enjoy running and take part in a weekend park run as often as possible. I own a 1972 MGB and as a result have a fascination for classic British sports cars. I also follow F1 motor racing.

My wife and I are extremely grateful to Mr Hemmings-Portas for his expertise, help, advice and patience. Thank you.
