If you could give your 20 year old self one piece of advice what would it be?

Well the only clean answer would probably be put down the Cornish pasty and cider and get to the gym. Advice that current me is not following.

If you could change your name what would it be and why?

Luca. Not a massive change, but a damn sight more interesting than Luke, chosen because Gawain is unpronounceable to those not Welsh. I might just able to pass myself off as Italian!

You have a 1 minute ad slot during the FA Cup Final, what would you fill it with?

I would educate football fans about how they have picked the wrong sport and the only sport they should have any interest is in rugby. Rugby Union obviously.

If you had to live without one, would you choose internet or AC and heating?

I am a millennial (just about), so I cannot function without internet access.

My most annoying habit is?

Asked my long-suffering girlfriend, I think she would be able to give you a list as long as your arm.

Luke’s legal career began at Mark & Co Solicitors. At Mark & Co, Luke developed his excellent communication and organisational skills but it also gave him an invaluable insight into that most essential skill for a lawyer -great people skills. He later worked for Quality Conveyancing, getting to grips with the demands of a busy conveyancing team and extending his knowledge of the routine and complex aspects of conveyancing.

Luke believes that the key difference between an average conveyancer and a great conveyancer is the ability to get on with people, being empathetic in stressful times and conscientious so that the sale or purchase completes according to plan. The key to any successful transaction is to work well with your colleagues. He knows that conveyancing can be a high-pressured job, where the demands of the day can take a toll on the very best of us. He knows that just making a cup of tea after having to deal with a particularly annoying problem can make all the difference.

When it comes to client care, Luke’s attitude is to try and put himself in the client’s position. As you will often hear, buying or selling a property can be as stressful as getting divorced. With that in mind, Luke tries to appreciate the stress levels and will work diligently to reduce the levels wherever possible.
