• I am a property disputes solicitor. My work covers all aspects of contentious property matters for a mix of private, public and third sector clients including investors, developers, lenders, central and local governments, NHS organisations and registered providers of social housing.

    I advise on a breadth of issues ranging from landlord and tenant disputes (e.g. business lease renewals, dilapidations, forfeiture and arrears) and real property law to squatters, trespassers and obtaining vacant possession of sites.

    I have experience of litigating in the County Court, High Court and Court of Appeal as well as alternative dispute resolution methods including mediation, adjudication and arbitration.

    • Valley View Health Centre (a firm) & Ors v NHS Property Services Ltd [2022] EWHC 1393 (Ch) – part of the team acting for NHS Property Services. Resisted the Claimants’ application for declarations and successfully obtained favourable declarations as to the nature and terms of the tenancies. The decision represents a striking example of the principle that a pause in negotiations for a written lease does not necessarily result in the creation of a tenancy by the implied by the conduct of the parties.
    • Acting for a lender securing an order for possession of a Belgravia town house and an £8m money judgment. Successfully resisting an application in the Court of Appeal for permission to appeal the possession order and money judgment.
    • Successfully acting for a lender challenging a borrower’s breathing space moratorium under the Debt Respite Scheme (Breathing Space Moratorium and Mental Health Crisis Moratorium) Regulations 2020 due to unfair prejudice and securing an injunction prohibiting joint borrowers from applying for successive moratoria under the Regulations.
    • Acting for a Hospital Trust in securing possession of a hospital unit from squatters.
    • Advising a registered provider of social housing in connection with a group action by leaseholders relating to service charges, disrepair, nuisance and breach of the covenant of quiet enjoyment.
