Alister Prew Consultant

A solicitor and consultant at Simpson Western, Alister provides broad expertise in all property related areas of law, with a particular interest in property development.

His specialist experience means he can assist both our business and personal clients with a wide range of property issues, including residential and commercial property sales and purchases, subdivisions, property leasing and due diligence.    

With two daughters following in their father’s footsteps and working as solicitors in London, Alister says this provides a perfect excuse for an annual trip to Europe. Alister enjoys going to plays, films, operas and eating out, and keeps fit by going to the gym and walking. 


“I enjoy working with long standing clients whose businesses I know very well and new clients who provide different opportunities that keep work interesting and challenging!”
