Leslie has positioned himself as the king of proprietary estoppel in this market.” “He is not bombastic but methodical and is an excellent cross-examiner without being ruthless or discourteous.” “Exceptionally reasoned and detailed.”
Leslie qualified as a mediator in January 2016. His background is predominantly commercial disputes and problems, and in particular those with a real property element including contracts for the sale of land, development and overage agreements, commercial landlord and tenant disputes and Town and Village Green applications. Leslie also acts in probate disputes, Inheritance Act claims and trust litigation, but is happy to mediate in any field.
Leslie acts as an independent party in the dispute resolution process to facilitate open discussion and reach consensus between the parties, without the need to go to court with all the added expense and aggravation.
Leslie is described by his peers as “a brilliant advocate and an exceptionally clever man. He is easy to get along with, supportive and practical.”
