About David

David graduated from Edinburgh University with an LLB (Hons) before going on to complete his Diploma in Legal Practice and a Masters in Law at the same institution. He undertook postgraduate research at Manchester University, looking at the legal and ethical implications of intellectual property protection of human genetic information. His first post-academic job was as an investigator for the Parliamentary Ombudsman. Before training as a solicitor with a large London firm he worked at HM Treasury, the Financial Services Authority and – for a second time – the Parliamentary Ombudsman, undertaking his Postgraduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course in his spare time at Westminster University. David qualified as a solicitor in June 2007. He qualified into a commercial property department, developing a particular specialism in Leasehold Reform matters. He joined TWM as a partner – after a short period working for a major London council – in June 2016.

He has worked on a wide range of commercial transactions but now solely focuses on enfranchisement and Leasehold Reform matters. He acts for both landlords and tenants and has had wide experience of lease extensions, house enfranchisements and collective enfranchisements.

David’s interests include tennis, comedy and cycling, including the occasional cyclosportive. He has been known to combine his interests in tennis and comedy into performance pieces, and he owns too many bicycles.
