Andy Finkel


Residential Property

I am a Partner in our Private Client Team and was previously Managing Partner at Ireland Abrahams, until that firm merged with Harold Benjamin in 2013.


I specialise in residential lease extensions and enfranchisements, particularly statutory lease extensions under the Leasehold Reform Housing & Urban Development Act 1993.  I also conduct the sale, purchase and remortgage of residential freehold and leasehold properties.

I have a pragmatic and dynamic approach to work, aiming where possible to avoid generating unnecessary documentation whilst still covering all the necessary legal bases. 

On a day to day basis, I regularly advise both landlords and tenants in respect of prospective lease extensions and enfranchisements.  A substantial part of my workload comprises acting for developers with a large property portfolio who are approached by their lessees seeking to extend their individual Leases.  I also however act for individual tenants seeking to extend their own Leases with other landlords.

I speak English, French, Hebrew, Spanish.

Education and Qualifications

  • BA Legal Science, Trinity College (Dublin)
  • Post-Qualified Experience: 35 years (1984)

Memberships and Recognition

Life Outside the Law
