Hugh specialises in acting on a wide range of private-client-related property matters. He acts for individuals, landed estates and institutional clients in relation to all aspects of property law. He also has particular expertise in guiding clients through the process of residential property, and buying and selling country houses, sporting estates, farms, and agricultural land.
In addition, Hugh has a wealth of experience in the equine and bloodstock sector, having acted in sales and purchases of equine property, including advising the purchaser of a racehorse training yard, as well as working on a range of stud farm transactions.
Prior to his arrival, he held the role of Managing Associate for Bond Dickinson’s Private Wealth team in Newcastle.
“I was very pleased to take up the opportunity to join Keystone. Not only does the firm provide me with the perfect platform from which to offer an excellent service for my clients, it also presents a wealth of prospects for them to ask for advice in other areas in which they may require assistance. I very much look forward to my future at the firm.”
Hugh will divide his time between London and Newcastle, catering for the needs of his client base while assisting with Keystone’s expansion across the North East. The firm recently announced that it had secured office space in the region as a response to an increase in demand from both clients and lawyers wishing to join.
Keystone’s Managing Partner James Knight continued:
“Over the course of the last few years, we have been developing a specialist property practice that caters for a wide range of clients. Now, with Hugh’s significant experience and skillset, we look forward to further boosting our capabilities in offering clients support with their wealth affairs.”
