Former Thrings partner joins Mogers Drewett’s commercial property team in Bath

February 25, 2019

Regional law firm Mogers Drewett has expanded its commercial property team with the appointment of Richard Pike as a new partner in its Bath office.

Richard, pictured, joins from rival Thrings’ base in the city, where he worked for more than three years. 

Richard has extensive experience in commercial property law, with a particular focus on development, option and overage agreements. He also specialises in acting for both landowners and mineral and aggregates operating companies on the management and extraction of mineral deposits.

He has also worked in private practice in London for leading law firms Addleshaw Goddard and Shepherd and Wedderburn, and in-house for the London Development Agency, where he advised on projects such as the land assembly for the 2012 Olympic Park and the Emirates Air Line cross-Thames cable car.

He has also worked in Swindon for Clark Holt and in Nairobi for one of Kenya’s top commercial firms, where he advised on projects such as the land aspects of a proposed geothermal power plant within Mount Longonot National Park.

Richard said: “I’m excited to be joining Mogers Drewett. Not only is it a well-established firm, but it has a positive reputation throughout the South West and is known for working closely with clients to deliver successful outcomes. I’m looking forward to working with the team and getting to know and understand our clients’ businesses to support their property plans.”

Managing partner Steven Treharne said Richard’s arrival was a great addition to strengthen and broaden the experience of the firm’s growing commercial property team.

“His ability to make the complicated sound straight forward and empathize with clients’ needs make him the perfect fit for the firm and will offer our clients clear and commercially savvy advice,” he added. 

Mogers Drewett also has offices in Wells and Sherborne.
