As a commercial property lawyer, I work with individuals and businesses like developers and retailers, helping them to get their property issues and needs resolved as quickly as possible, often to tight timescales.
I have specialist expertise in the energy sector and I regularly work with companies assembling land rights for renewable energy projects. I really enjoy the dynamic nature of this industry and it allows me to bring together both commercial and legal aspects for a successful transaction.
I work closely with clients to understand their aims right from the beginning, and I’m always available when they need me. Good communication is crucial so I keep everyone involved fully up to date with the process. I’m very proactive and commercially minded, and I’ll work hard to identify any issues and solve them quickly so that I can keep a deal on track.
My passion is reading, and I always have a book on the go – I probably read a book a week! I also love being out in the countryside and cooking for my friends and family.
Always ask – please call us and we’ll answer any questions you have.
Please read our reports – they take a long time to prepare and if we’ve told you something, it’s generally for a reason.
Talk us through your objectives so we can understand the bigger picture.
How long will it take?
We need as much information from you as possible in order to make an honest and realistic estimate – once we have that, we can give you an accurate timeframe.
Why do lawyers overcomplicate matters?
We don’t, or we shouldn’t, but you wouldn’t thank us if we don’t flag potential issues. If we do find a problem, we can find the solution.
Why are all the elements of the process necessary?
Clients often think their transaction will be simple – this may be the case, but we still need to make sure that things have been done correctly for their protection and for our legal compliance.
