Working with farmers often feels like home from home, as my family run an arable farm in Leicestershire. I enjoy practicing in this area of law and supporting an industry I am already a part of. It is because of my farming background that I can relate to the issues facing clients and offer a deeper level of understanding and advice.
I am interested in the diversification required in farming to ensure profitability and sustainability in what is a challenging sector. Achieving the client’s objectives is my priority, so I listen carefully to your needs and take a pragmatic approach to reach the end goal. I have supported many farmers and landowners, offering advice for agricultural affairs, rural property matters and more.
Outside work, I love getting outdoors by running, hiking, and playing football.

How long does the Land Registry take to complete a first registration?
Unfortunately, the pandemic has caused severe delays for first registrations, taking as long as 14 months to complete an application. In some circumstances, we can send a request to the Land Registry to expedite the registration.
How can I communicate with you?
In whatever way is best for you, whether that is face-to-face, phone, email, text or video call.
What are your fees?
