A bit about me

As head of the Real Estate Litigation team, I use my 26 years’ experience in the field to help corporates and individuals to solve their property issues.

Prevention is better than cure, so I often advise my clients on how to avoid disputes first of all. and then manage them effectively should they happen. To keep things as cost effective as I can, I help clients to solve cases via arbitration and mediation, but if it comes to court, I’ll ensure that proceedings go as smoothly as possible.

I often work with occupiers, developers and investors in the real estate sector, from corporates and retailers to charities, educational establishments and nursing homes. Having worked in the City for a number of years, I’ve developed strong connections with many companies, and use the expertise I’ve gained to successfully navigate a wide range of real estate issues such as insolvency, landlord and tenant disputes, and professional negligence claims.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, together with some clay shooting and developing my interest in music and cars.

Want to know more?

Keep hold of any relevant paperwork or emails, and make notes at any meetings you attend.

If you don’t seek legal advice early, you may lose the opportunity to seek a different and more effective resolution

Be clear on what you want to achieve, or at least talk to me about what might be possible, so that I can prepare an appropriate strategy for you.

How much will it cost?

At the outset, there are usually too many unknown factors to give anything but an indication of the final costs, but I will give a budget for the initial steps and stick to it.

How long will it take?

It’s impossible to give anything but a sound indication at the outset, as every case is different.

Am I going to win?

Once we have considered all the key points and evidence, we can form a practical view of the prospects and plan the way forward.
