I am a commercial property lawyer with 20 years’ experience. My practice involves leading the Leeds commercial property team on various aspects of commercial property work including landlord and tenant work, acquisitions and disposals, property finance, property development, investment property portfolios and high value and complex residential transactions.
I work for a number of local and national clients including companies, individuals and banks, and I advise mainly on secured lending transactions ranging from bridging funding, development funding, refinancing and portfolio refinances and I work closely with clients to ensure their financial and commercial goals are met. I also undertake work on behalf of a number of residential developers dealing with the transaction from site acquisition, implementing the legal aspects of development funding, estate set up and plot disposals.
I am thorough in the due diligence and risk-management aspects of my work and partner with my clients to strategise their transactions.
I am also Head of our Leeds office.
My main contact in Bevan Brittan is Lyndon Campbell. I have worked with Lyndon for many years, and even during difficult legal and complex problems that we have experienced, Lyndon has taken the time to understand the organisation I work for and, where necessary, to then provide expert advice to us.
