A bit about me

Construction plays a huge, positive role in the economy by enabling employment across the supply chain. As a construction real estate lawyer, I am proud to play my part in a sector which is taking a leading role in a zero-carbon future as well as supporting economic growth.

I work with a range of clients including contractors, consultants, manufacturers, funders, research bodies, and educational institutions. Whichever one I’m working with, I operate on absolute client focus. You will always come first in all of my advice, guidance, and work.

I am a very experienced lawyer, which gives me a lot of pragmatism of saying it how it is, and I know the importance of being responsive and acting quickly in real estate. I pride myself on client care and making sure you have a positive experience.

My work ranges from producing construction agreements and terms of engagement, advising on public procurement and dispute resolution. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, eating good food, and being in my garden.

Want to know more?

Be clear as to how the required advice will be provided e.g. partner lead, other team members.

Don’t feel concerned to require price certainty.

Pick up the phone if there are ever any questions – you are the client after all.
