A bit about me

Achieving the best deal on a sale, or helping a business expand by moving into new facilities, is why I enjoy practicing property law.

At the start of our relationship, I’ll work with you to find out more about you and your personal or business successes and challenges. Risk is a very personal thing, so once we understand how you operate, it’s much easier to advise you.

I have a wide range of expertise working for major corporate companies, SMEs and private individuals in buying, selling or leasing commercial or residential property including development projects. I’ll bring a sense of humour and a ‘can do’ attitude to the deal, and I’m also very proactive and commercially-focused.

Outside of work, I like cars and football, especially Manchester United and my children’s team, Gotherington Football Club. I also love walking in the countryside, especially if there is a pub at the end!

Want to know more?

Take on a solicitor you can build a rapport with – we’ll be talking to each other a lot!

Agree a reasonable timescale. The earlier we start, the better the chance we have of meeting it.

Ask questions and set out your concerns or key issues at the start.

Is this normal?

Yes is the usual answer, but it’s a no, we’ll explain and advise you as to why.

Would you buy it?

This is difficult to answer but if we are asked it, we’ll use it as an opportunity to go over the key issues again.

Is the other side playing ball?

This process is all about good communication, and the better and more direct the communication is between the solicitors and agents, the easier the deal will be.
