What's your role?

I am an Associate in the Real Estate team, specialising in development. I predominately work with regional housebuilders and commercial developers in offering practical advice throughout the entire cycle of a development project; starting from site assembly all the way to planning, construction and plot sales.

My aim is to develop a close relationship with my client from the outset and get a thorough understanding of their business and objectives. This will often involve working closely with a client’s in-house team, consultants and advisors and using these relationships to strike an appropriate balance of commercial risk and a clients’ wider business objective.

I also have a great deal of experience in Landlord and Tenant matters, working with either landlords or tenants on the grant, acquisition and renewal of commercial property leases. My experience and understanding of the local market enables me to provide my client with practical support and complete transactions on time and on budget.

Your experience

Recent highlights include:

  • Representing various regional developers and landowners on option agreements, promotion agreements and purchases of development sites involving complex pre and/or post completion conditions.
  • Representing a national used car supermarket in their rapid expansion throughout England and Wales by taking various leases or purchasing freeholds of dealerships and prep centres.
  • Advising a bank in lending £9.5M in connection with a borrower’s £16M purchase of a mixed use building in London.
