MSP Capital has welcomed  solicitor Dan Curtis as its new Head of In-house Legal.

He brings more than 20 years’ property market experience to our Poole-based team, which provides principal development and bridging loans for sums up to £20 million.

As well as overseeing MSP Capital’s legal affairs and providing advice and guidance to colleagues, Dan will manage the firm’s five-strong in-house legal team.

Dan joins Team MSP after 13 years as a Partner with law firm Blake Morgan.

Among his stand-out deals there, he led the team that advised David Lloyd Leisure on the real estate aspects of its sale to TDR Capital.

He also worked with a large health care provider on certifying its care home portfolio of over 250 care homes.

Before Blake Morgan, Dan worked for Birmingham practice Wragge & Co, now part of international law firm Gowling WLG, having gained his law degree from the University of Sussex in 2001.

The former Poole Grammar School pupil said he was attracted to MSP Capital because of its ‘ambition, entrepreneurialism and genuine passion for property’ across its culture and operations.

Dan said: “MSP genuinely wants to help its clients to completion while ensuring rigorous standards are met. I’m a ‘property person’ and, likewise, the MSP team are all ‘property people’ so it seemed like a natural fit.”

Paul Miracca, MSP Capital Managing Director, said: “Dan has a high level of legal acumen coupled with extensive knowledge and experience from across the property market.

“We are keen to harness and apply his skills to inform our relationship-led lending and the benefits we bring to our clients through robust, flexible lending solutions.”

Among Dan’s immediate colleagues at MSP Capital are Legal Director Neil Woolgar, Solicitor Matt Laing, Executive Paralegal Jacqui Schott, Legal Secretary Sandra Dakanyte and Legal Assistants Sarah Franklin and Isabella Reale.
