About Us

Marveen Smith is a founder of PainSmith, a specialist property law firm.

PainSmith Solicitors specialise in commercial and residential lettings and residential long leases. This is different from many more traditional firms of solicitors where individuals are frequently moved between departments or cover a large number of different areas of law. Since all of our team work solely in residential and commercial property they have practical experience and knowledge that is unmatched elsewhere in the legal sector. We are not simply ‘eviction specialists’ (although we lead the field in that area too) but cover all aspects of property law and have particular strengths in more complex areas such as residential agricultural tenancies, tenancy deposits and the new Housing and Planning Act 2016.

We strive to maintain a close working relationship with our clients and aim to understand the business and needs of individual clients to improve the way in which we interface with each client’s organisation.

We will give strong advice where necessary based upon our professional skill and judgment and will not shrink from telling unwelcome truths. We will counsel you against any course of action which in our opinion would be ill-advised for legal or commercial reasons. We will not encourage you to carry forward litigation in order to build our reputation if that is not in your best interests. Where possible we offer solutions to problems through lateral thinking.
