Profile

Sectors

Tristan leads BDB Pitmans’ landed estates and agriculture team. As well as having 20 years’ experience as a property solicitor, he is a farmer’s son and farmed his family farm alone and in partnership for 14 years. This gives him unparalleled practical knowledge of issues that arise in the sale, purchase and management of rural and agricultural property related matters.

In addition, Tristan is one of London’s leading advisers in the residential property market, having been nominated by Chambers and Partners for the award of Residential Property Lawyer of the Year in 2018.
