Alison Spender

Senior Associate

I assist on a broad range of commercial property matters, with a particular focus on landlord and tenant work, where I have acted for a variety of landlord, developer and retail clients. I regularly act on new lettings and advise on property management issues.


I enjoy bringing technical knowledge and commercial experience together to put myself in the client’s shoes and deliver the desired outcome. Being part of the commercial property sector in an age of such rapid change is a really enjoyable challenge for me and there is something new to learn every day.


Remaining calm, focused and efficient under pressure, I endeavor to understand the client’s needs from the outset in order to deliver their objective on time. A client once commented I have a straightforward, commercial outlook and provide clear advice, no matter how difficult things might look.
