When not at work

David has a life-long passion for motor racing, having raced in the 1970’s. These days he ‘competes’ in F1 from the comfort of his armchair. He also enjoys travelling, keeping fit and walking.

Contact Staff Member

David Coates has advised my business for over 15 years, always in a skilful, timely and attentive manner, with an attention to detail that is rare in a pressurised environment, and so often complimented on by our lenders and counter parties. Acting on behalf of Braemar Group PLC, of which I was the founder, and which has over £1billion of property under management, David and his team have handled complex, high value transactions, including the acquisition of the freehold of the £150m Beetham Tower in Manchester, which comprises a Hilton Hotel, and is the tallest residential building in Europe.
