I am a partner in the Private Wealth team and head up the Leasehold Enfranchisement and Residential Management teams, which are divided between our London and Chichester offices.

I am experienced in all aspects of enfranchisement work, including collective and lease extension claims, and right to manage and first refusal claims. I also have a wealth of experience in residential property development and commercial landlord and tenant, and have been regularly named by Legal 500 as a 'Leading Individual'.

Our team acts for a number of intuitional landlords with mixed use buildings and we offer a complete service for all their property needs.

Areas we can advise on include:

  • Leasehold Enfranchisement
  • Residential Management
  • Residential Development
  • Rights to Light and Party wall issues

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

Watching Crown Court as a child in the 1970s! Of course the reality is nothing like that.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Achieving successful outcomes for clients whilst operating in a friendly team environment.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I attempt golf regularly but badly. I have also just taken up clay pigeon shooting. Otherwise I enjoy travelling and walking my four dogs.

I qualified as a solicitor in 1985.
