Christen Mulingani

Senior Commercial Property Solicitor

Get in touch

Christen Mulingani is a senior commercial property solicitor of over 15 years' experience, attaining partnership status in 2010 and joining Harper James in 2018.

She has experience in the full spectrum of commercial property transactions including freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals, estates management, corporate support and has particular expertise in unregistered land and title rectification issues.

Christen was previously the elected chair of a Shropshire networking group of professionals and SME business and was a representative of the Integrated Advisory Group, IAG International, at their conference in Venice.

Christen has considerable previous experience in the following sectors:

  • Energy, utilities and environment, particularly in pipelines
  • Public sector, in both local and central government
  • Retail and luxury brands, including fashion and consumer goods
  • Manufacturing, including industrial products, food & drink/agribusiness, automotive and transport

Since qualifying in 2003, Christen has worked for both leading international firms and regional commercial practices, and her recent experience includes:

  • Full management of the estate portfolio of both a major high street bank and the Defence Estates including mixed use, training and industrial properties
  • Acting for a National Utilities Provider, managing a multimillion pound installation project for four major gas pipelines across a total of 180 miles comprising largely unregistered land
  • Lead property advisor on a number of corporate acquisitions with property portfolio values of up to £20million

Before she had twins, Christen enjoyed an active social life, playing the piano, Ceroc dancing and Karate. Now she mostly spends her time watching from the sidelines, acting as family mediator and drinking gin.

Christen has also taken part in our Spotlight on a Solicitor series, sharing her journey into law and proudest career moments. Read the interview to hear about her life in law.


What our clients say

We pride ourselves on delivering an excellent service for clients, but don’t just take our word for it.
Christen did more than just understand our requirements - she went beyond contractual obligation, had our backs, and was resolute, tenacious and unwavering in protecting our interests during a lengthy lease negotiation process. Without Christen’s expertise, we’d have faced disastrous exposure on a legal and financial basis. Not only that, as our negotiations spanned the period of the Covid Pandemic, and commercial implications of the crises emerged, Christen's commercial knowledge was vital in bringing our attention to pertinent additional considerations so easy to miss - enabling us to make informed business decisions with unwavering assurance. Finally, unlike so many of her peers, Christen is gifted in being able to communicate complex legal terms - and the commercial consequences of them - in a way the non-legal minds of her clients can grasp.
