Spear’s meets Ian Cooke and Sakhjit Randhawa fresh from their transition from Charles Russell Speechlys to Keystone Law. The pair are glowing about the move: they have their own small base just around the corner from the Ritz, distinct from the firm’s head office. ‘Our clients love coming here,’ gushes Cooke.
It is no secret that the past year has been tough for the market. But, says Randhawa, ‘There is something about London that makes people never want to stop investing.’ Certainly, recent upheavals have not impinged on Cooke and Randhawa’s success: they have been involved in some of the biggest recent deals, at Clarges Mayfair and 20 Grosvenor Square.
