David Pettingale

David Pettingale helps clients to transact real estate business of all kinds, whether as seller or buyer, landlord or tenant, developer or investor.

David's many years of experience for a wide range of clients mean that he is ideally suited to address the technical demands of complex transactions and also to manage the commercial sensitivities of challenging negotiations.

A collaborative approach is often the key to a successful outcome and his ability to reconcile the needs of the respective parties while keeping focus on the overall goal has enabled David to play a key role in helping clients deliver major and long term projects.

As an ardent cricket fan David was delighted to contribute to the redevelopment of Edgbaston International by concluding the negotiations with Calthorpe Estate that modified restrictive covenants affecting the site to the extent necessary to allow the re-development to proceed. The project involved a detailed technical analysis of the underlying legal position to inform the commercial negotiation and a resolution (after some delicate negotiations) ultimately to the satisfaction of all parties.
