About me

As someone who has always had an interest in the countryside and rural environment, it’s important to me to be able to help my clients run successful businesses in a rapidly changing commercial and regulatory environment.

I’m a pragmatic solicitor who focuses on what is important for the client – as someone who understands how farming groups work, I can explain issues in a relatable context.

I work with a range of landed estates, farmers, food producers and charities, providing advice on land sales and purchases, development options, agricultural and commercial tenancy advice, overage agreements and renewable energy projects.

Outside work, I enjoy football, motorsport and hill walking.

Top Tips & FAQs

Discover my top tips

Engage professional advisors early – although this may seem counter-intuitive, early engagement can actually save time and costs in the long run.

Try to make sure that your professional advisors are provided with all the relevant background information. If in doubt, mention it, and we can decide whether it’s relevant or not.

Don’t be afraid to ask your questions and don’t rush into something until you are comfortable that you understand the proposed transaction.

Read questions I’m frequently asked

How long will it take to complete the legal work?
This depends on a variety of factors, but let us know at the outset what your requirements are and we will try and meet them – or provide you with our best estimate of timescales.

Should I argue about a particular point and insist that the other party agrees to my demands?
Legal documents often require negotiation, and it is important to keep focussed on what is commercially important to you. We can help you decide which are the most important points to pursue in a negotiation.

I’m not sure if this question relates to your area of law or if you can help with this…
Just ask! I may not be able to answer the question myself, but if I cannot, it is likely that I will be able to introduce you to a colleague who can help or at least point you in the direction of where to find help.
