My role

I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Commercial Property team based out of our Thames Valley offices.

I have a broad caseload of commercial property work and have extensive experience in all areas of commercial property law, including negotiating commercial leases on behalf of both landlords and tenants, freehold and leasehold sales and acquisitions, commercial and residential property development, property finance, renewable energy, property asset portfolio management and advising on the property aspects of corporate sales and acquisitions.

I have particular expertise in acting for the retail and restaurant sectors and for charities. On the retail and restaurant side, I act for tenants in their roll-out programmes and for large landlords in letting out their portfolios and retail parks, with clients including charity retailers, national supermarket operators, national restaurant chains and high-end luxury retail.

I trained in London and returned to the Thames Valley after practising in Tier 1 law firms in the City of London.

My experience

Some of the types of transaction I have been involved in include:

  • Acting for charity retailers in their roll-out programmes and subsequent portfolio management
  • Acting for national restaurant chains in their premises acquisitions
  • Acting for one of the major supermarkets in their freehold and leasehold premises acquisitions
  • Acting on the property elements on the sale of a major national hotel chain
  • Acting for banks on their secured lending
  • Acting for national housebuilders and smaller developers
  • Acting for a major retail park in negotiating their shop leases
  • Advising national and local businesses in negotiating leases on their office relocations
