  • ‘James Lawrence heads the property team at Viberts, which advises clients on sale and lease transactions, as well as offering expertise in real estate financing and property litigation.

  • ‘James pulled out all the stops to get my lease through court – thank you!’

    Peter Baillon, Property client
  • “Viberts practice is led by the ‘courteous and proactive’ James Lawrence, who ‘combines expert knowledge and perseverance with a much-needed sense of humour’. The team, which handles a mixture of contentious and non-contentious matters, acted for Unite the Union on the sale of a property, which was owned by a union in the 1980s that later became part of Unite; Lawrence had to establish to the court who now owned the building on behalf of Unite and had the power to sell it.”
