What can I do for you?

I have over 15 years’ experience in all aspects of commercial property and I act for developers, investors, landowners, and occupiers. This means I am able to understand the transaction and the issues arising from all sides. I have a particular strength in project managing large scale transactions and leading cross-office and cross-discipline teams of lawyers in delivering excellent client service.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

I get a real sense of achievement from delivering projects on time and on budget for clients. I have led a number of acquisitions of large multi-let assets which have exchanged within a very short period of time from receipt of heads of terms. These transactions have required support from various other legal disciplines and have involved managing a large number of lawyers to deliver the project. I have ensured that the transactions have concluded within the challenging timescales which have been set notwithstanding issues arising along the way (such as title defects which have needed to be rectified) by providing frank and clear advice to the clients drawing on my experience of acting on such matters to ensure a commercially acceptable position for the client which protects their interests whilst enabling the deal to get over the line.
