About Denise Serifoglu

I qualified as a solicitor at the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in 2012. I am enthusiastic, proactive and commercially minded Solicitor with over 10 years’ experience advising local authorities including London Boroughs and a large County Council.

Previously as part of the Property team, I
provided advice on a full spectrum of property matters including commercial leases, academy leases (in conjunction with DFE Contracts), licences and easements. I also advised on Landlord and tenant matters and cross-rights and complex land transfers.

I have now joined the Planning & Highways team where I am advising on land transfers of highway land following development, stopping up orders to extinguish highways rights over roads and footpaths and S38 and s278 agreements.

Within planning, I have experience in S106 agreements to secure contributions towards education, social care, waste and local libraries and advising on appeal statements for planning appeals.

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
