An experienced commercial property advisor dealing with broad-reaching projects and portfolios


My expertise across all property disciplines makes me a valuable advisor to clients with a wide range of interests.

I advise residential, commercial and mixed use developers on all stages of a project from site acquisition to disposal. This covers planning, licensing, construction and promotion. I also advise lenders, borrowers and sellers on the investment side of transactions.

Another area of expertise is commercial landlord and tenant law where I advise on all matters, with particular experience of the retail sector where I have experience of working with numerous high street brands.

If I wasn’t a lawyer I’d to be a novelist
My greatest life lesson so far is be tolerant and never judge
