Charles Okin

Equity Partner

Charlie founded EC&P with Eddie Lesley in 1980 following a period at Strutt & Parker. He's been advising major occupiers, developers, and investors ever since. His extensive experience and track record is unparalleled in the market today.

In his spare time Charlie is an avid kite surfer (in warmer climes at least), he's still to master a double back roll!

Sean Cunningham


Sean has only ever specialised in the Central London office market and through advising start-ups to Listed REIT’s has developed a passion for intuitive building design and its influence on occupier’s decision making.

Having recently hung up his rugby boots (after a few too many trips to the operating table) golf and cooking now dominate home life, along with a flourishing mid century furniture collection.

Andrew Okin

Equity Partner

Acting for both landlords & tenants, Andrew prides himself on providing future-proof advice with design-led influences, attention to detail and the benefit of over 20 years' experience.

When not in work mode, you'll usually find him at the gym, watching football or looking in the mirror!

Ian Bradshaw


Working for a niche practice on a diverse client portfolio and estates, has given Ian a wholisitc view of the property lifecycle. He's passionate about Design, Wellbeing, Sustainability & CRE Tech agendas, employing them early and often on the projects he works on.

An accomplised sportsman prior to his property career, he's now taken up golf (during the pandemic) and fears he will never fix his slice or stop three putting. After a round, there's always time for a braai and reminding everyone who the current Rugby World Champs are.

Mark Phillips

Equity Partner

Mark joined ECP over 35 years ago after being introduced to Charlie following a cricket match. His client base is varied from private investors to plc’s and Mark’s particular interest is working on development opportunities from inception through to the delivery process. One such scheme is a mixed use development of 350,000 sq ft for Groveworld in Kings Cross.

Out of the office Mark will either be walking his 3 dogs or playing golf, or better still, combining both pursuits.

Ollie Mitchell

Graduate Surveyor

Ollie has brought youth, exuberance and an eagerness to learn with him following a non-cog degree at University. With a passion for sustainability, marketing and design which he will apply to his role in the Central London Office Market.

He claims if it were not for a knee injury, he would have been a pro rugby player, we will have to take his word for that. He now spends his free time re-injuring his knee and causing the ECP medical insurance premiums to go through the roof. He’s always keen to nurture relationships on the golf course and will try persuade anyone who will listen, why Eddie Jones shouldn’t have been sacked as England head coach.

Ted Polkey

Associate Partner

Ted joined us from Gerald Eve and has over 8 years’ experience in some of London’s largest and most complex rental disputes. He focuses primarily on rent reviews, lease renewals and lease regears. But is enjoying working as an integrated hand in glove team alongside the agency department.

Outside the office he is a keen cook as well as an avid rugby fan. He's also taken to padel, with his first victory made all the sweeter following a long and enduring introduction to the sport.

Amy Skidmore

Senior Surveyor

Amy is our newest joiner, previously from Avison Young in their City agency team where she completed her RICS accreditation. She quickly gained experience on larger assets across the square mile, for a diverse client base. She’s looking forward to applying her strong foundation in Real Estate into the West End market. Working on some exciting up and coming projects.
