James Liffen

Spear’s Review

A specialist in handling complex sale, purchase and refinancing transactions, Mishcon de Reya’s head of residential property James Liffen has been described by one client as ‘very calm under fire and attentive, as well as very professional and always available’. He is a deft hand at complex deals involving shared ownership, auction sales, portfolio purchases, tenancy, and planning issues.

Liffen, whose entry into property law was ‘slightly accidental’, has spent over a decade advising on complex deals. He describes his workload as ‘very diverse’, acting on everything from leases worth tens of millions in Chelsea to student portfolios in Stoke. Whoever the client is, they can expect a top-notch service from Mishcon, says Liffen.

Adviser Profile

James is a partner and head of Mishcon de Reya’s Residential Property team specialising in residential conveyancing. James regularly deals with complex ultra-high-value deals and has been involved with some of the most high-profile residential property deals. As well as being well known and hugely experienced in the Prime Central London Market, he has also acquired a number of significant country houses and estates for his clients in recent years.

James’ clients are predominantly high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals but he also frequently acts for investors, entrepreneurs and corporate clients.

James is listed as a ‘top flight’ lawyer in Spear’s and a leading individual in the Legal 500.
