“Leisha has been my property lawyer of choice for the last decade. She combines brilliant technical ability with an eye to the commercial reality of each transaction. She is proactive, accessible and responsive. Her advice, and its rationale, is readily understood by lawyers and non-lawyers alike, making her an invaluable asset for both internal briefings and external negotiations. I cannot recommend Leisha highly enough.”
