I am a Solicitor in Michelmores’ Agriculture team, having joined the firm in December 2020.

Since qualifying in December 2022, I have had a wide range of agricultural litigation experience, including property disputes, agricultural and general landlord and tenant disputes, professional negligence, commercial/contract disputes, right of way disputes, boundary disputes and proprietary estoppel claims. I also have experience with other “non-contentious” drafting and advisory work, including drafting a variety of deeds and agreements relating to the letting of land and farming business structures. My clients include a range of individuals, partnerships and businesses operating within the UK agricultural sector.

I am a professional member of the Property Litigation Association. I also regularly contribute to the team’s agricultural articles designed to keep clients up to date with changes in legislation, recent case law and upcoming matters which may affect them.
