Senior Partner


Alastair qualified as a solicitor in 2007 and he is based at our Hawes office in North Yorkshire. He is a Property solicitor handling all commercial and residential property transactions, including Landlord and Tenant. He has a range of clients, from property developers, landlords, tenants, companies and individuals from England and many other countries.

Having qualified in a small family practice, he moved practices in 2010, and became a partner of a solicitors firm in Hawes at the age of 29. Alastair then worked on growing the business, and in 2016 merged with local firm to create a two office practice. His ambition to continue to build the business led to a merger with Counterculture Partnership LLP in 2022. Despite the growth he continues to pride himself on his personal touch and dedication in endeavouring to achieve the wishes of his clients.

Outside of work Alastair has always enjoyed participating in and watching sports. He continues to be a keen runner and wild swimmer, but also enjoys coaching junior football as a qualified coach. He also enjoys attending music events, and playing music himself. Having released an album in 2007 his songs were described as “the essential acoustic experience” something which he is now hoping to pass on to his children.
