Hazel Leonard

Head of Commercial Property

Hazel joined Walker Foster in October 2016 as head of the firm’s commercial property department where she undertakes a broad range of commercial property work, including acting for buyers and sellers of retail, office, public house and site investment properties. She also deals with asset sales and acquisitions, option agreements and transfers with overage provisions.

Hazel has over 20 years’ experience in commercial property gained across a very wide ranging and diverse area. For example, whilst working in the public sector for a local authority she dealt with landlord and tenant, allotment leasing, agricultural tenancies, well funding agreements and lottery funding agreements. In the private sector she worked for My Travel where she was responsible for Lease and Licence arrangements for anything airport related, preparing agreements for anything from ticket desks to aircraft hangers!

Best part of the job for Hazel:

I take a personal interest in the needs of the firm’s commercial clients and always strive to provide a first-class service to help clients to achieve their objectives. It is very satisfying to know that you have achieved the best possible outcome for a client, particularly when the negotiations have been difficult or lengthy.
