Andrew Lawson

Senior Solicitor

Andrew has worked in the legal sector for 40 years. He’s a Senior Solicitor in our Commercial Property team.

Commercial Property

Switalskis Solicitors Ltd
Cranbourne House, 36 Gracious Street

Andrew deals with the following commercial property transactions:

  • Sales
  • Purchases
  • Leases
  • Development including conditional contracts and options
  • Mortgages
  • Land Registry applications
  • SDLT


Andrew tries to take a commercial and pragmatic approach to all his matters. Generally, more can be achieved by picking up the telephone either to clients or to other professionals rather than just sending out emails. Andrew always tries to return calls when he is unavailable and has always felt that being a good communicator is a vital part of his role.


  • The team is acting for a large commercial developer who is looking at developing over 80 sites for electric vehicle charging stations often with drive thru coffee shops
  • Andrew has acted for Nandos for over 10 years on leases of at least 20 restaurants up and down the country but mainly in the north of England
  • Andrew has acted for developers in acquiring sites in the North East for commercial developments of retail units and drive thru restaurants and then with the subsequent sale of the completed development
  • Andrew has acted for developers in acquiring sites and then letting them for convenience stores
  • Andrew acts for a number of landlords in connection with the granting of new leases and with management of existing leases

I’ve dealt with Andrew Lawson of Switalskis for over 10 years now. Andrew is extremely knowledgeable, and I can always rely on him to let me know exactly what we need to do and when. Andrew’s eye for detail and his proactive approach is invaluable when it comes to opening new restaurants on time, with the minimum of fuss. I can’t recommend him highly enough."
