About

I am a trusted adviser to clients in the real estate sector and specialise in the acquisition, disposal and management of real estate investments, real estate development and corporate headquarters (HQ) relocations.

I offer clients a solution focused, commercial approach often acting on complicated transactions with competing stakeholders (such as large scale development transactions involving local authorities on master plan developments, joint venture partners and/or development managers).

My clients include leading property funds and asset managers including Capreon and Ares Management and real estate developers, advising on transactions covering a variety of asset classes such as office, retail, leisure and industrial properties and large residential development schemes.

As investors increasingly look for greater returns in a competitive market I work hand in hand with clients to manage and deliver transactions often involving bespoke and novel arrangements aligned to their funding and exit strategy.

In addition to advising real estate investors and developers I also act for household names advising on their occupational requirements, with a particular expertise in relation HQ relocations and the inherently personal nature of such transactions.

I practised for a number of years at a leading City law firm before moving to Fladgate LLP in 2018.
