I am an associate solicitor in the residential real estate team and am based in the firm’s London office. I studied law at Warwick University and University College London and then trained and qualified with a large City law firm before moving to Irwin Mitchell in August 2022.
I specialise primarily in high value and complex residential property transactions, often involving properties in Prime Central London and requiring an exchange of contracts and completion within very short timescales. My work also comprises of advising on and providing support for transactions driven by other teams in the firm but which have a residential property element, for example, mixed-use developments and large scale portfolio refinances
Much of the work I do also involves numerous parties such as landlords, managing agents, right to manage companies and lenders.
In addition to acting for buyers, sellers and landlords, I undertaken work for various lenders, both domestic and international involving conventional and Shariah compliant lending. I have worked closely with specialist tax and banking lawyers in reviewing and advising on these documents, and of course dealing with the property conditions precedent.
