About Rowena Birch

I was drawn to commercial property and the opportunity it provides to combine legal skills and expertise with helping businesses achieve their needs and strategic aims.

I enjoy the challenge that comes from finding solutions to problems that balance technical knowledge with commercial understanding. I always take time to understand a client’s needs and objectives at the start of a transaction so that I can be sure to find the most cost-effective and time-efficient way forward.

What I like about working for Goughs

Goughs is a great place to work full of hard-working, dedicated, and skilled people. Greenways is an uplifting, modern working environment where we work closely together as a team to ensure our clients get the best possible service and value for money.

I have been a commercial property solicitor since I qualified in 2006.

Specialisms:

As Head of the Property Investment Sector, I specialise in acting for investors in commercial property whether private individuals, partnerships/companies, charities, or financial institutions.

I can help with all aspects of commercial property work including buying and selling freehold and leasehold property including transactions via a SIPP or SASS

Testimonials from clients

My recent cases

One recent case handled the disposal of a portfolio of properties valued at £5m approximately in line with the distribution of assets following the dissolution of a partnership.

Another case included acting for a semi-professional football club to secure their occupation of their ground and secure the club’s future in the town and place in the football league.

I recently provided advice on the availability of Multiple Dwellings Relief for SDLT on the transfer of a portfolio of a mix of residential and commercial properties.
