What’s your role?

In short, I help clients to get their deals done. I lead a strong team of lawyers based in our Lakeside office, and we look after the interests of property developers, landowners, commercial investors and banks. We try whenever practical to get out on site so we can understand the physical constraints of any property better, and we are always seeking to understand our clients’ business and personal ambitions as well as we can, in order to tailor what we do to meet their overall objectives in context.

My aim is always to be in effect part of the client’s own team, working alongside clients to drive deals forward, while ensuring naturally that all due diligence and contractual detail is covered. The aim is always to engineer solutions wherever problems are encountered.

I also really enjoy acting as a sounding board for clients on future opportunities.

Your experience

I have been doing pretty complex land and property deals since the early 1990s. I learned my trade at a major regional firm where I qualified as a solicitor in 1989, having previously gained my law degree at Cambridge. I have been with Coffin Mew since 1995 and am a former Chairman of the firm, but am now enjoying concentrating much more on client work, and building and running the team at our Lakeside office.
Acquiring and disposing of land for development takes the bulk of my time these days, but I also enjoy working with lenders on property finance arrangements, and advising on commercial investments.

I have been recognised as a recommended lawyer by independent industry publications for many years.
