A leading law firm has moved to strengthen its real estate team.
Hong Kong-born Vicky Tsan joins Axiom Stone Solicitors’ China Desk.
In addition to English, she is fluent in the Mandarin, Cantonese, Indonesian and Spanish languages.
At Axiom Stone, Vicky lines up alongside Mandarin-speaking colleagues handling the firm’s Chinese clients.
She mainly acts for overseas investors from China, Hong Kong and South-east Asia and has extensive expertise in residential property dealings – both sales and purchases of large-scale new build projects and second-hand properties.
On commercial properties, Vicky has represented developers and private clients on land purchase and lease enfranchisement matters.
She understands the business models of leading developers, estate agents, bridging loans and financial brokers in the UK, which allows her to provide seamless legal service for clients.
Vicky also has a good knowledge of the Islamic mortgage market and has represented many financial institutions as their panel solicitor, including overseas private banks in Singapore. Before coming to Britain, she also worked in public relations and for the Hong Kong Magistrates Court as Court Officer.
Her main outside interest is in home styling which involves a lot of reading and attending events. She is currently developing a blogto share her home styling ideas with her followers.
Vicky says: “Gathering experts from all legal facets, Axiom Stone allows me to provide a comprehensive legal service to all my clients, in particularly overseas investors. I am very proud of being part of the team in Axiom Stone”
Idnan Liaqat, Head of Property, said: “The UK real estate market is in a state of constant development and diversification. The deterioration of markets within countries such as China and Singapore during the past few months and the weak pound has reflected a significant investment from the Far East, as people look to purchase properties within the UK as a form of stability for their portfolios.
“This has allowed us to also diversify our presence legally to deliver to our client’s objectives.”
“Vicky’s presence and extensive experience will undoubtedly help Axiom Stone with our core principles of client contentment and offering of technical and pragmatic solutions.’’
Axiom Stone Solicitors has over 100 staff and is one of the capital’s fastest growing full-service law firms.
