A bit about me

I am a passionate real estate lawyer, with a background in geology, geotechnics, and environmental consultancy. This unique experience gives me a much wider understanding of land and the built environment, and my time in industry allows me to offer a much wider scope of advice.

I work with developers, private property companies, landowners, occupiers  and industry bodies. With every client needing something slightly different, I take time to understand what they do and how they do it, so that I can offer the most succinct and relevant advice.

I am a straight-talking lawyer and I always try to avoid jargon, translating complex property law into plain English wherever I can. I’m always readily available for my clients, if something’s urgent or simply needs doing then I’ll roll my sleeves up and get it done.

Outside of work, I’m a passionate road cyclist.

Want to know more?

Be organised and keep your property records to hand.

Try to agree comprehensive heads of terms in any transaction. They are the roadmap for the lawyers. So, the better they are, the easier it is for the legal teams to translate the deal into the required documents.

Use other professionals to support the transaction where needed – they can add significant value and save you money in the long run.

How long will it take?

Much depends on how the property or land in question is owned (its title). We have a well-developed land law system and clean titles are few and far between. Most land has ‘baggage’ that the lawyers need to understand, translate, and work around
