Manish Patel


I joined the Crane & Staples Property department in 2018 and became a Partner in April 2022.

Having come from a science background, I qualified as a solicitor in 2006. I trained at a small firm in London and have also worked at a medium sized regional firm, and a UK top 100 law firm.

I am a specialist in all aspects of residential and commercial conveyancing, including:

  • Freehold and leasehold transactions
  • Transfer of equity transactions
  • Remortgages
  • Lease extensions
  • Short term development loans
  • Commercial and bridging loans
  • Option agreements
  • Commercial property sales and purchases
  • Commercial leases
  • Asset Purchase Agreements
  • Land sales and acquisitions.

I have established a ever-growing  and loyal client base consisting of residential buyers, small businesses, property investors, developers, and portfolio landlords. I also work with limited companies who acquire, sell or refinance their property portfolios. I have a particular interest in the acquisition of care homes mixed use premises.

I take pride in providing methodical, professional and personable client care.

In 2019, I was a finalist in the Company and Commercial Lawyer category at the national Asian Legal Awards, going one better in 2021 when I was New Business Champion of the Year at British Conveyancing Awards.

Outside of work

My wonderful family take up much of my time however my passions are the red side of Merseyside, travelling, reading, writing short stories, playing cricket for Welwyn Garden City CC, and being a terrible golfer.
