Commercial property lawyers to offer practical advice at surveyors seminar

Graduate and junior surveyors of up to five years PQE will also be able to pick up useful legal tips and practical advice about heads of terms and obtaining vacant possession from Thrings’ team of experts at the seminar which takes place at the firm’s Bristol offices in the Paragon on 18 May.

The full programme of presentations being given by Thrings' Commercial Property team is:

More than 60 junior surveyors from across the South West have already registered to attend the seminar, including those from Carter Jonas, Cushman & Wakefield, Bilfinger GVA, Jones Lang LaSalle, Lambert Smith Hampton and Savills.

The seminar – now in its second year – marks a continuation of Thrings’ close working relationship with members of the South West surveyor community, and follows presentations given by partners Warren Reid and Alex Madden to Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) members at the organisation’s annual South West conference earlier this month.

Matthew Smith, associate solicitor at Thrings, said: “This is the second in Thrings’ series of ‘Networking and Knowhow’ seminars for junior surveyors of up to five years PQE, and follows the success of last year’s inaugural event.

“The topics being discussed at the seminar have been very carefully chosen, and follow consultations with many of the surveying practices which the firm works with. Through this, we have been able to understand some of the issues and challenges that junior surveyors face in their roles, and then tailor each presentation to ensure they offer guests insight into key legal concepts and practical tips to take away.”

Pre-event drinks for the seminar will be served from 5pm, with presentations getting underway at 5.30pm. The event will conclude at 6.15pm, after which guests will have the opportunity to network over drinks and chat to Thrings’ solicitors about key themes arising from the seminar.
