I am an experienced lawyer practising in the agricultural and rural business sector. With so much variety and changing regulation, and clients ranging from farmers and landowners to landed estates and businesses, this industry requires a sharp eye, cultural understanding, and a commitment to seeing things through.
I am a proactive and quick to respond lawyer with strong listening skills. I enjoy working as part of a team to ensure that every angle of an issue is covered for my clients. It’s my job to extract all the relevant facts and get the client on the right track from the outset. I enjoy nothing more than getting a deal completed for my client on their best possible terms.
I advise clients on a variety of rural matters including purchases, sales and mortgages. I also deal with complex first registration applications at HM Land Registry, including large estates and farms as well as utilities services, commercial leases, overages, easements and agricultural tenancies.
Outside of work, I remain passionate about farming and environmental matters, as well as enjoying cycling and walking in the countryside.
