Matthew Desborough

Senior Solicitor

I specialise in commercial property and corporate work, advising business owners on both their property and business matters. I am based in our North Hill office in Colchester.

On a day-to-day basis, I deal with property matters such as assigning, granting, or taking leases, purchasing freehold commercial property, and acting on the refinancing of commercial property.

In addition, I am also involved in acting on corporate matters including sales and purchases of businesses and companies, acting on share buybacks, and assisting the day-to-day running of a company with the drafting of constitutional documents such as Shareholder Agreements and Articles of Association.

I also act on corporate residential matters including acting for clients on company buy-to-let sales and purchases in addition to re-financing and transferring property portfolios from an individual or partnership to a company.

  • Specialisms – Commercial Property Law and related legal matters.

  • Hobbies & interests – I am a season ticket holder at Colchester United. I also enjoy playing golf and am a keen runner. I have completed a number of half-marathons and in November 2019, completed a 275-mile relay run from Colchester with 5 others to raise money for the Huntington’s Disease Association.
