What's your role?

I am a Partner in the Commercial Property Team. 

I take pride in helping clients to get their deals done, being responsive and finding commercial solutions to problems ensuring that our client’s interests are protected and objectives are achieved. I have acted for housebuilders, land promoters, property developers, further education colleges, landowners, investors, RPs, landlords and tenants.

I deal with a broad spectrum of work but also have a particular specialism in land promotion agreements, options, hybrid agreements and collaboration agreements for strategic land.

 

Your experience

I joined the team at Coffin Mew LLP in September  2021 having spent the previous six years working in the real estate team of a top 20 national law firm where I co-chaired the strategic land sub-sector.

Recent Highlights:

  • Acting for an investor on the acquisition and charge of a £15m warehouse facility
  • Dealing with the sale of a 320 unit consented site to a national housebuilder for in excess of £20m
  • Providing strategic advice on a student accommodation development in Exeter for 120 beds
  • Acting on the grant of a 10 year lease of a warehouse facility to a national retailer at a rent of circa £350,000 per annum
  • Leading on the sale of a 200 unit consented site to a national housebuilder for circa £10m, which included complex overage and SANG provisions
  • Advising on a number of strategic land options and hybrid agreements for land promoters
