David started his legal career at Holland Beckett in 2013.  After completing a stint in the Litigation team, David moved into John Mackay’s Commercial/Property team to work alongside Tim Neill. David’s practice is largely centred on residential building and he specialises in advising both Vendors and Purchasers in this area.
