Louise Oliver



I am an Associate in the Private Wealth Residential Property team at Irwin Mitchell and have worked in the residential property sector for over ten years.

I deal with a wide range of residential property matters but specialise in investment work and the set up and disposal of both leasehold and freehold developments (producing buyer-friendly sales packs and extranet sites) to individual buyers and international investors.

I have particular experience with high-end London residential properties and currently act for property investment companies and developers. I also work for high net worth individuals and deal with landlord and tenant issues (including rights of first refusal) as well as portfolio acquisitions.

My experience also includes dealing with:

  • acquisition and disposal of freehold and leasehold properties for investors and private individuals
  • voluntary and group lease extensions
  • LPA Receivership property sales
  • mortgages and refinancing
  • deeds
  • various types of licences (re property management)

What inspired you to get into law?

Watching various different law-related dramas whilst growing up (all of which documented the fast-paced and exciting working day in law firms) initially attracted me to Law. I would become the lawyer who won every case in front of the big scary judge, despite any unfavourable evidence!

Whilst the reality is not quite as glamorous, I was (and still am) hugely motivated by women enjoying and excelling in successful careers, in an interesting and forever developing industry.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

The variety, not only in the role itself, but the many different and interesting clients and colleagues I deal with on a daily basis. I thrive on the fast pace of our work, the complexity of legal documents and ultimately finding a solution and successful way forward for my clients.

What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?

Whilst I only joined Irwin Mitchell in January 2018, the warm welcome received and friendliness of colleagues across the firm has rid me of any doubt that the move will be a positive one, and this excites me for the future.

What do you do away from the office?

I love attending live gigs and the theatre, trying out new restaurants and socialising. Friends and family are key and fill a lot of my time. I would love to see more of the world and have a long list of destinations to visit.
