A bit about me

Coming from a farming background, where my family run a considerable farm shop business, I have always taken an interest in the way that the commercial side of agriculture works. Now, as a lawyer, I specialise in agriculture and rural affairs including sales and purchases of agricultural land and farms, dealing with landed estates, renewable energy, and other rural property matters including utilities services and easements.

I enjoy getting to know and working with local farmers. The farming sector works long unsociable hours so I make sure I’m always on hand whenever convenient. I like nothing more than getting out on a farm for a meeting and seeing the business at work. My personal approach means I develop long-lasting relationships.

I’m connected with local lettings and estate agents, as well as accountants, so I can make introductions for my clients too.

Outside of work, I’m a keen supporter of Saints Rugby in Northampton. My golf handicap of 7 is slowly improving, and I obviously enjoy being out in the countryside!
