Brona Simmonds Partner T:01782 349 530 M:07585 686 606

An experienced property lawyer who has been advising landowners for nearly 30 years.

Brona advises on the acquisition and sale of development sites, conditional contracts, options, promotion agreements, joint ventures, development and overage or clawback agreements, the sale and purchase of farms and agricultural land, agricultural tenancies and subsidies, heritage properties and tailored commercial and residential funding.

Her clients include landed estates, agricultural families, private business owners, developers, trusts, charities, local authorities and registered social landlords based throughout England and Wales, although with a strong following in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire.

Examples of how Brona’s advice has added value to clients include:

  • identifying a risk in a complex multi-party funding agreement and improving the client’s position;
  • helping a client acquire units on a development site which required liaison with the local authority, a third-party developer and a grant funder within a strict timetable; and
  • completing, in time for crop planting, the purchase of a large area of agricultural land which was being sold in lots by connected, but inefficient, sellers.
