I am in the Commercial Real Estate team with over 15 years of experience. I find the most satisfying aspect of my role is that I get to help clients, and each day is a new challenge with no two days ever being the same. I always listen to what my clients’ particular needs are, and I act in a logical manner, free of jargon. I’m based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217319.
My key areas of work are secured lending (acting for the borrower and lender, or separately representing the lender), the acquisition and disposal of commercial property, granting and taking of leases, and providing support to the Business Team on share/asset sales, and mergers and acquisitions. I also specialise in collective enfranchisement and lease extensions under (and outside) the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, and sales and purchases under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987.
I am a board member of the Sigma Trust, a multi academy trust which comprises seven local schools.
I enjoy spending time with my family and taking part in local marketing events (especially quizzes). I enjoy hill walking, cycling and swimming, and am now an armchair viewer of most of the sports I used to play, including rugby and football. I also enjoy films, books, theatre and music and take part in a variety of sporting events to support local charities, including a desert trek for St Helena Hospice and the Nuclear Mud Race for St Luke’s Hospice.
