Delva Patman Redler has appointed Ashley Patience as Partner, marking his return to the company after starting his Neighbourly Matters career with the team 15 years ago.

Ashley worked directly for Delva Patman in party wall and neighbourly matters surveying from 2005 to 2007, before joining GIA where he worked his way up to Equity Partner. With a focus on city centre high-rise and masterplan developments, Ashley has worked on several landmark schemes including 22 Bishopsgate, The Scalpel, Can of Ham and the Shell Centre, as well as advising on the Earls Court Masterplan, along with other town-centre projects and shopping centres. He has also worked for developers and neighbours on high-end residential developments with a focus on basements.

At Delva Patman Redler Ashley will continue his work in party walls and neighbourly matters, working with Equity Partners Alistair Redler, Rob French and Stuart Gray, along with the rest of the specialist team.

Ashley comments: “Returning to Delva Patman Redler is a bit like going home for me. Having treasured those earlier years as some of the most enjoyable in my career, it was only natural for me to speak with Alistair again when considering moving on from my previous role.

“I am incredibly pleased to be coming back as Partner within this fantastic team. Delva Patman Redler has long been considered the leading practice in their specialist fields but remain at a size where they retain traditional values and a family feel. I look forward to bringing my own experience to the team and to next era at Delva Patman Redler.”

Alistair Redler, Senior Partner at Delva Patman Redler, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Ashley back to the Delva Patman Redler family. His extensive experience will perfectly complement the specialist services we offer, and we look forward to picking up – although much further along – from where we left.”
