I assist Birkett Long with Business Development. I now refer my past clients to Birkett Long and they consult with me having been satisfied by the personal level of service I have provided in the past.
I practised in real estate and corporate law in the past. I had a great deal of responsibility in developing my firm’s local influence and breadth of client base which I seek to bring to Birkett Long.
I am responsible for developing the local presence and client base of Birkett Long. I was offered this role upon my retirement from my earlier practice.
In my spare time I love travelling, I have visited all 50 US states. I enjoy sport (supporting Essex County Cricket Club and Southend United FC).
