Meet Ian Millington, Hillyer McKeown Commercial Property Partner.

Commercial property clients want legally sound and commercially focused advice to ensure transactions run smoothly and efficiently. Clients appreciate my open and approachable style and ability to convert work, turning it around quickly.

In my experience, I have found that they also look for a commercial lawyer who can offer sound business advice. I take pride in providing quality legal services which addresses the needs of clients during each stage of the matter, and throughout the life cycle of their business.

I enjoy working with owner managers in the small and medium sized (SME) businesses market and being able to assist them. My focus is commercial property work, although my breadth of experience includes other commercial work (property, corporate and employment). This means I can also advise you on any commercial aspect that your company or business may need including:

  • Commercial property advice
  • Commercial landlord and tenant advice
  • Negotiating and drafting leases
  • Bridging finance expertise
  • SIPP and SSAS property transactions
  • Company law
  • Business sales and purchase
  • Employment advice for businesses and individuals
  • Residential property & equity release

By way of example, my broad range of experience and expertise means I can advise an aspiring business which needs assistance with a commercial property lease, a more established company looking to expand, or a mature business which needs advice about selling or making financial investments.

If I can help you in any way, please contact me for a no-obligation discussion.
