Michael Rust

Michael is a senior Commercial Property locum solicitor, based in Leeds, providing practice support.

After graduating in jurisprudence, he studied and worked in the European Institutions and then trained at the then Pinsent & Co. (now Pinsent Masons) in Birmingham.  After working as an Assistant Solicitor with Commercial solicitors Baxter Caulfield & Co. in Huddersfield and in general practice in Wakefield, Michael became a Partner/Principal in general practice in East Lancashire, where he remained for 25 years.

In 2010, Michael moved to work in and from Yorkshire, providing practice support.  This took the form of inter alias standing in for Heads of Department/Senior Partners, who had either retired or were absent due to illness/incapacity.

After his recent experience guiding firms through the process of evaluating and expanding their Commercial Property departments, Michael is well placed to put across the ins and outs of Commercial Property work for the benefit of the aspiring practitioner.
