An award winning, sole female equity partner at JPC, Yashmin Mistry has been noted as a
“Recognised Expert” in the Legal 500 bibles for 2015 and 2016.
Her reputation as a leading Leasehold Enfranchisement and Landlord & Tenant expert has
led to Yashmin twice being voted “Solicitor of the Year” (2011 and 2015) at the News on the
Block Enfranchisement Awards as well as previously achieved accolades including “Young
Professional of the Year” and “Regional Solicitor of the Year”. Yashmin was also short listed
for 2011’s “Asian Woman of the Year” and 2016’s “Women in Law”.
An Honorary Legal Consultant for the FPRA (the Federation of Private Resident’s
Association), Yashmin has also been invited to join the committees of “ALEP” (Association of
Leasehold Enfranchisement Practitioners) and “ARHM” (Association of Residential Housing
Managers) within the last 12 months.
Yashmin’s career to date has seen her gain recognition as an industry expert in the
technically complex area of leasehold law, particularly collective enfranchisement and right
to manage cases. Her involvement in this niche area of law has seen her involved in ground
breaking cases such as Daejan Investments v Benson and Rosslyn Tenants Association v
Winstonworth; both outcomes leading to amendments in the law.
