What can I do for you?
I work in the real estate team and have over 30 years' experience in a wide range of property transactions. I work with both national and regional clients, from both the private and the public sectors. In particular, I help clients in the negotiation, implementation and project management of larger, more complex transactions, including development projects, acquisitions and disposals, and leasing.
Supporting my clients’ ambitions
I am a firm believer in outstanding client service. A key part of that is always trying to understand what our clients want and their key commercial drivers. Any lawyer should fit in and be part of the client's overall team, whether that is the internal team or the wider, external project team. I am committed to providing advice that gives advice. I have recently been involved in the management of the property work relating to the creation of the new university campus for UCS in Suffolk. This involved working with several third parties, both private and public sector, against absolute deadlines, to ensure delivery of the project in time for the arrival of the first students.
What do others say?
Legal 500 mentions a client who describes my Norwich real estate team as being "noted for its extremely responsive highly commercial approach”. The team is also well known for its friendly and pragmatic style.
What else should you know?
I am group leader for our real estate group. I have responsibility for the firm's real estate practice, which includes over 20 partners and over 80 lawyers. It is one of the UK's largest real estate practices and continues to grow, year on year. As part of our vision, the firm has a particular focus on certain sectors. For the real estate group, our focus is on doing good quality work for good quality clients across the UK real estate market.
