Landlords and tenants have been part of my professional life since the start, and I have acted for developers, investors and retain tenants on commercial leases in London. Much of my work involves leaseholds, lease extensions and enfranchisement, so I work both with commercial property and individual tenants or landlords.
Dealing with people is what I love about my area of law – success is based on mutual trust, and my commitment to my clients means that I regularly keep them up to date with progress, I have a really commercial and pragmatic approach and I don’t give up before I’ve found a solution to their problem.
Outside work, I love travel, yoga and the theatre.
Involve your solicitor at an early stage especially with regard to commercial leases ask them to check heads of terms.
The client/solicitor relationship must be based on trust.
Good communication is the key to a good client/solicitor relationship.
