Edward Burton

Spear's Review

Edward Burton works across the spectrum of residential property at Maurice Turnor Gardner, where he was minted as a partner in 2020.

The fast-talking Oxford graduate joined the boutique in 2013 and his expertise is sought out on everything from listed properties to lease extensions. Burton, who trained at Allen & Overy, has seen his department grow to six people and a trainee.

Maurice Turnor Gardner is 'very relationship-driven,’ adds Burton, noting that families are a key client base.
