David joined Christopher Davidson in May 1999 and deals with a wide range of residential conveyancing, but with a particular specialisation representing overseas investment clients and dealing with new property purchasers.
David has 40 years’ conveyancing experience and since 1994 has developed very strong links with multi-national companies and overseas clients, particularly based in Hong Kong and other south-east Asian countries. He regularly visits Hong Kong to attend property exhibitions and to meet clients in person. His involvement with Asian clients is such that in order to accommodate time differences, he regularly starts his day at 6.30am! The number of clients who give David repeated business are evidence of his prompt, efficient, friendly and professional service.
