I’m an Associate in Michelmores’ Transactional Real Estate team. I assist a diverse range of private and FTSE-listed companies, charities, local and central government bodies, blue-light service providers and individuals covering a broad range of commercial real estate work.

This includes asset management, freehold and leasehold sales and acquisitions of commercial property and landed estates, granting and taking commercial leases, commercial development and secured lending.

I also specialise in renewables projects in providing assistance in dealing with all the property aspects relating to delivering fully functioning and fundable renewable energy parks from cradle to grave, acting for landowners, developers and funders in doing so.

Having joined Michelmores on qualification in 2012, I am proud to have been able to develop lasting relationships with my clients and provide links to support from within the wider Firm to assist with their needs. The collegiate and supportive atmosphere has undoubtedly been a key to delivering cross-practice support to our clients, whatever the matter.
