A highly experienced and skilled property lawyer, Gary represents clients’ interests across a variety of business sectors. His work includes the negotiation of commercial leases, sales and acquisitions, corporate restructures and building developments. Recent cases include the sale of a large portfolio of local nursing homes and the refinancing of a loan portfolio for a lending institution based in England. Clients value Gary for “his professionalism, sense of duty and reliability.” Gary is also a registered Trust and Estate Practitioner; he leads McKinty and Wright’s Life Planning team and oversees the work the firm undertakes for its private clients.  As well as the usual non-contentious matters, recent work in this area includes several contentious family disputes which have been successfully resolved by mediation. “Gary Patterson is a true professional and has made this whole process a lot less stressful than I was expecting it to be. I think the family has found a Solicitor for life.”
