Solicitor – admitted 2009
I am a Senior Associate in the Transactional Real Estate Team at Michelmores. I advise a broad spectrum of clients on a wide range of commercial real estate matters, with a particular focus on investment and corporate occupier work.
I have extensive experience in Landlord and Tenant matters acting for investors on all aspects of asset management work, as well as tenants taking new office or retail space. I frequently deal with complex freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals, on both conditional and unconditional bases.
In addition, I undertake the following work:
I also have specialist knowledge of charity law and the additional complexities involved when dealing with property owned by, or being disposed of to, charities – including exempt educational institutions and non-exempt charities.
My client base includes private investors, higher and further education institutions, a well-known hotel group, pension funds, a large animal food producer, and various national retailers, charities and companies. I thrive on building long-term relationships with clients and playing a positive role in the development and adaptation of their businesses.
Having been with the Firm for over 15 years, I have witnessed many changes at Michelmores, from becoming paperless to the more recent changes associated with agile working. There has always been a great commitment to the needs of clients but also on development of staff, which makes for a happy, collaborative and supportive working environment.
