About

I am a non-contentious construction lawyer specialising in UK property development and projects.

I have over 20 years’ experience as a construction lawyer.

I have acted for a wide range of clients – developers, a variety of lenders, contractors and consultants, ranging from large corporate entities to entrepreneurs. Most of my work has been in the UK property market but I have also undertaken a number of international projects and acted for international clients.

My focus is on transactional work. During my career I have been lucky to have advised on some fabulous landmark developments including St Pancras Chambers, the Emirates Airline Cable Car and for the last 13 years, the phased redevelopment of Wembley Park.

I have worked principally on mixed use and residential developments (including a significant build to rent element), but I have undertaken projects involving designer outlet centres, city centre redevelopments, hotels, offices, railways and infrastructure.

I have also developed an expertise in sports related construction projects - helping with football stadium developments and venue use agreements. I have negotiated agreements involving the NFL, LOCOG and the UEFA.

I am also a member of the CIC liability panel.

I am genuinely fascinated to see the finished developments I work on and what can be achieved in terms of architecture and interior design.

When I am not working, I can usually be found either out with my family or at home knitting, quilting or cooking. More recently, and in common with many clients and colleagues, I have also become a part - time primary school teacher and a trainee hairdresser.

Experience

  • Acting for Quintain in relation to the phased redevelopment of Wembley Park – I have been involved with Wembley Park since 2008 and have watched the development of the 80 hectare site and the place making go hand in hand. Most recently I have become involved in the newest phase of the development to the north east part of the site.

  • Working with residential developer with a particular expertise in airspace developments.
  • Advising a client on a significant refinancing with a value of over £600 million and undertaking all relevant construction due diligence and documentation.
  • Redevelopment of St Pancras Chambers – I was part of a team that acted for the developer over a period of 7 years both in relation to the development of the residential apartments, the hotel, and the concourse retail, and also the development finance. This project saved one of London’s most iconic buildings.
