I am an experienced senior associate solicitor in the commercial property team and assist clients across a range of sectors, including Energy, Resource Management, Education and Healthcare Estates.
I have experience in providing commercial, effective advice and negotiation on a broad range of legal matters, including leading on high-value transactional and estates rationalisation projects, advising on integration and protection of land interests in energy infrastructure schemes, overseeing large-scale title due diligence projects and undertaking landlord and tenant work.
Examples of recent work include:
- as part of wider energy deals, advising local authorities and energy companies in relation to securing rights for energy from waste facilities and district heat network infrastructure and ensuring protection of network equipment;
- advising on a rationalisation and redevelopment project in a multi-party deal for healthcare properties in London;
- acting for local authorities and education institutions on all property aspects of a national programme for new and upgraded school sites, including title due diligence and rectification, landlord and tenant, and site acquisition;
- acting in a multi-million pound complex disposal of surplus parcels of land for redevelopment, including advising on formation of terms of the deal.
Clients have praised me for: “being unfailingly approachable, friendly and calm in all dealings" and for "breaking down difficult concepts for clients and getting to the crux of complex issues very quickly, providing solutions via effective and frank communication”.
