"Have worked with Matt over the last 12-18 months on a complex property deal in the Midlands which involved a number of title, tenant and funding issues. Matt dealt with all aspects of the deal in a confident, competent and professional manner to provide us with an excellent result"


I’m a Senior Associate in the Real Estate team based in Bristol. I joined Michelmores from a national firm having trained and practised at US City firm Reed Smith LLP.

I have over a decade of experience acting for institutional investment funds, private family funds and corporate, retail and leisure occupiers with a particular focus on the industrial/logistics and hotel sectors.

I regularly advise clients on all aspects of commercial real estate including acquisitions, disposals, asset management (landlord and tenant), development and funding.

I have a keen interest in renewable energy installations, sustainability and green issues affecting funds, owners and occupiers.
