Melanie Benson

Spear’s Review

As a partner in Harbottle & Lewis's property group, Melanie Benson advises on commercial landlord and tenant work, plus residential conveyancing and investment and development work.

Clients include a mix of individuals, from ‘off-shore UHNW clients to tech entrepreneurs, arts impresarios and footballers’, Benson says. ‘They value quality, individual, tailored advice from lawyers who understand and know their businesses and their lives.’

Supported by Harbottle & Lewis’s private capital team, Benson provides a service that is both specialist and modern in approach. She notes that clients' privacy is paramount, and that maintaining it has sustained several long-term client relationships.

When asked about her clientele, she will only say: ‘Discretion is key – and my lips are forever sealed!’
