Ian Cooke

Ian provides legal advice to UHNWs buying and selling luxury London houses and apartments. This has been the core of his practice and the reason he travels extensively around the world in support of his clients.

Transactions are high value, confidential, technically complex but often urgent. The best property always commands intense interest and competition from wealthy international buyers as it has a scarcity value. This complicated work has to be navigated correctly, to a challenging timetable, in order to deliver a successful outcome to the client.
