Ben joined Jamieson Alexander in 2015 and was made Director in 2016. Ben specialises in lease extension and enfranchisement matters, as well as Landlord and Tenant issues for either Landlords or Tenants including service charge disputes, ground rent arrears and the right to first refusal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987.

With considerable experience in lease extension and collective enfranchisement claims, under both the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 and the Leasehold Reform Act 1967, for Freeholders and for Lessees, Ben is able to provide detailed advice to clients on the processes involved, eligibility, timescales and costs as well as the finer details and idiosyncrasies of the legislation itself.
Having trained as a litigator from the outset of his career in Law, Ben is also able to provide detailed Dispute Resolution advice to clients on a range of matters, advise on enforcement of judgments and assist employers and employees when relations sour.
Ben likes to meet clients face-to-face where possible and gather a comprehensive insight into their requirements to enable him to advise concisely and accurately from the outset of the matter. Always on hand to discuss clients' concerns or wishes, Ben is very personable.
Ben originally trained and qualified in the field of Electronic Engineering and subsequently read Law at Brunel University before attending the College of Law in London for his Legal Practice Course. Outside of work Ben enjoys spending time with his wife and young son, watching Rugby, travelling the Country in his 1972 VW Campervan or travelling further afield.
