‘I love doing the deals,’ says Sonal Thakrar. The past six months have been ‘brutally busy’ for her and her team: ‘We got more than our fair share of the market in terms of the high-value transactions’.
The head of Mishcon’s residential property group says her work often involves multiple jurisdictions or particularly complex structuring. She has recently worked on several SPV deals: ‘We simplify the transaction because we do not need to overlawyer or overload it.’
With a peer describing her as a ‘dynamite conveyancer and hugely energetic’, it may or may not come as a surprise to learn that she’s also a yoga teacher – yoga is a ‘massive’ part of her life.
