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. I am also proficient at dealing with the specific needs of leisure, healthcare and sporting organisation occupiers.
