Chris Baker



I head up the Leasehold Enfranchisement and Residential Management team, which is divided between the London and Chichester offices. I am experienced in all aspects of enfranchisement work, including collective and lease extension claims, and right to manage and first refusal claims.  I also have a wealth of experience in residential property development and commercial landlord and tenant, and have been regularly named by Legal 500 as a 'Leading Individual'.

Our team acts for a number of intuitional landlords with mixed use buildings and we offer a complete service for all their property needs.

Areas we can advise on include:

  • Leasehold Enfranchisement
  • Residential Management
  • Residential Development
  • Rights to Light and Party wall issues

What inspired you to get into law?

Watching Crown Court as a child in the 1970s!  Of course the reality is nothing like that.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

Achieving successful outcomes for clients whilst operating in a friendly team environment.

What do you do away from the office?

I attempt golf regularly but badly.  I have just taken up clay pigeon shooting.  Otherwise I enjoy travel and walking my four dogs.
