Lisa is a real estate Partner with over 30 years’ experience in all areas of the sector including acquisitions, disposals, auction sales and purchases, leases, licences, assignments and development. Lisa brings her experience to bear for both occupier-tenants and landlords alike, and has a particular tenant focus on the leisure industry where she acts for quick-service restaurants, pubs, bars, private members’ clubs, nightclubs, and fun- and fine-dining chains. She also represents a number of multi-property landlords holding a portfolio of commercial property from industrial to residential buildings, advising on sales and purchases, lettings, lease interpretation, sales and purchases, and management issues.

She has also built up a practice area in advising landlords letting properties to social housing providers with experience in lettings to the Home Office, providers of housing for asylum seekers, social housing, and lettings to charities for public-sector purposes. Alongside her main area of commercial property specialism, Lisa also advises on high-value (outside the assured tenancy framework) residential lettings and residential sales and purchases for high-net-worth individuals.

  • Chopstix rely heavily on our lawyers to maintain this momentum, specifically Lisa Raymond at Keystone Law, whom we have been working with for the past 20 years; prior to Chopstix and much more so in the last 10 years. Lisa offers invaluable support with her years of experience with large institutions and corporate landlords. She understands our requirements and continues to support and challenge our needs through acquisitions with all our landlords. Her work is always thorough and commercial but she is also able to work to the timescales required and frequently burns the midnight oil when necessary to get us over the line with certain deals. I would highly recommend Lisa Raymond as our lawyer of choice to any restaurant group or retailer in the sector.
