Michael Ranson’s colleagues remember his rather uncommon application to train at Macfarlanes. ‘I put “I love property law” on the form,’ he says, adding: ‘It is still true. Two things still cause me to leap out of bed in the morning — the clients and the law.’ One of the most sought-after lawyers in London, Ranson acts on the acquisition, development and disposal of prime residential property, with particular expertise in leasehold enfranchisement. He has a clear mantra: ‘Lawyers must remember that we are in a service industry,’ he says. ‘Clients care about service and outcome, and are entitled to take the means by which that outcome is achieved — even if fiendishly clever from a legal perspective — for granted.’
