What can I do for you?

I am a real estate projects lawyer with a particular interest in public/private projects, development joint ventures, strategic land, infrastructure and associated financing requirements. My work involves helping clients - including funders, developers, landowners and operators - negotiate and implement large and complex projects.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

Understanding our clients’ objectives and drivers is key to the delivery of outstanding client service. We will work closely with you to deliver your projects effectively and efficiently. A particular highlight for me has been helping dozens of clients overcome legal constraints arising from charity and corporate law to enable them to implement project financings and realise their investment strategies. In some cases, I have been able to bring clients with similar issues together so that they can take a consortium approach to tackling the issue. On one occasion, I was able to find a way to enable the University of Hertfordshire to achieve the first bond-financed PFI accommodation project in the HE sector.

What do others say?

One of the most common things we hear from our clients is that our team is “approachable, friendly and responsive”. Chambers UK also says clients applaud us for “skilfully pursuing and protecting our interests in negotiations”. But I was particularly pleased to learn recently that one of our longest standing and most active clients continues to welcome our close support: “You give me a chance to talk through the higher level issues I face, and you mix well support and challenge.”
