A Charity Commission reminder - Trustees must not be paid for their services as a trustee –...
I am a solicitor in the Commercial Real Estate team. I provide clear, concise advice and pride myself on providing a quick and efficient service to my clients. I’m based in our Colchester office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01206 217337.
I act on all aspects of commercial property transactions, including acquisition and disposal of commercial property, landlord and tenant matters and secured lending. A large part of my work is the granting and taking of commercial leases for offices and shops, and I am experienced in acting for both landlords and tenants. I am also the commercial real estate representative for the Health & Social Care team, and I have experience in acting in both care home sales and GP leases.
I wanted to be a solicitor from a very young age. During my training contract I undertook a seat in the Commercial Real Estate team and I knew it was right for me. I love the intricacies and detail (especially of leases), and genuinely find commercial property transactions interesting.
In my spare time I enjoy walking, rock climbing and socialising with friends and family. I am a director of Colbea, a not for profit business enterprise agency. I also support local charity events including the Mersea walk for Samaritans and the Nuclear Mud Race for St Luke’s Hospice.

What our clients say
Thanks for concluding the business relating to the lease on my new business premises. I would like to say thank you again for the excellent service you provided. You were extremely responsive and were quick to keep me informed at every stage of the process. I am grateful for the excellent legal advice and your guidance through a process with which I was unfamiliar. I have always been impressed with the service I have received from Birkett Long and you are indeed a credit to the company. I wish you every success and will be in contact again should the need arise.David Everett, Managing Director, Tactical Cables Limited
The quick and efficient service received from Birkett Long Solicitors was excellent... we were dealt with quickly and professionally and would recommend these Solicitors.
