A bit about me

The commercial property sector is filled with opportunity, but it can be a complex world to navigate – no matter how experienced you are, or how big your business is. By taking the time to get under the skin of your particular situation, I can help you minimise risk and give you advice that can help you reach your desired outcome, quickly and easily.

Working with clients across a wide range of sectors, such as property investment companies, retail landlords and franchise owners, my team and I get involved at every step of the transaction, guiding and advising you to ensure a smooth transition for all involved. The vast experience of my team, and that of the wider Harrison Clark Rickerbys family, means that we can offer a number of specialist services to handle whatever a deal may throw at you. We give our advice in a jargon-free way, making it easy for you to understand so that you can make the right decisions.

Away from advising my clients, I love to get out into the great outdoors in my spare time, and I’m a keen cyclist and skier. I also enjoy watching the rugby and the football with my grandsons.

Always take advice – just like doing the DIY at home, you’ll save time and money if you get a professional involved from the start!
A handshake is a great way to seal the deal, but it’s vital to get any agreement in writing.
Always be thorough, and make sure you dot the ‘I’s and cross the ‘T’s.

How quickly can you help me? 
I will always turn everything round as quickly as I can, but it’s important to make sure that everything is done correctly. I will work with all parties involved to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible and that everyone cooperates to get the job done.
It’s actually really simple, isn’t it?
I really wish it were! More often than not, there are important aspects that have not been fully considered, which often become sticking points in the later stages of any deal or agreement. Therefore, it’s important to have someone like me on board from the outset.
I am only taking a lease – do I really need full due diligence?
Leases tend to be niggly, with heavy obligations for tenants that can result in huge liabilities if anything goes wrong. Therefore, full due diligence is always the best option.
