Frank Perri has joined the Lease Advisory team in the firm’s Woking and Soho offices at Partner level after more than six years at the Lorenz Consultancy in London.
He is one of three new partners announced by Vail Williams.
He will focus primarily on working with clients within the Surrey and London market, working across all the major property sectors to provide clients with strategic lease advice. He also has a responsibility to exploring new business development opportunities for the firm.
Frank’s key specialisms include lease renewals, rent reviews, lease restructuring, acting as an expert witness in arbitration and independent expert disputes and also acting as an expert witness in court disputes.
He said: “I am thrilled to have joined Vail Williams in Surrey and London and being part of such a progressive team in an area where there continues to be a tremendous amount of commercial property activity.
“There are exciting times ahead and I am aiming to play my full part in ensuring Vail Williams’ ongoing commitment to providing clients with a second-to-none service is fully achieved.
“Throughout my career, I have acted for a wide range of clients from a food manufacturer occupying more than 250,000 sq ft to a high-end fashion brand occupying less than 500 sq ft. Whoever the client, I enjoy achieving the best possible outcomes and lease terms for them.
Surrey Regional Managing Partner Geoff Fallon said: “We welcome Frank as a great addition to our lease advisory team as business continues to expand. He is a hugely experienced operator brimming with exceptional ideas and I am expecting him to thrive in his new role.
“With 10 years’ experience supporting clients with their lease advisory needs, he is widely considered to be an expert in his field and has experience working across all principal sectors, including offices, medical, industrial, retail and leisure.”
