A commercial property lawyer should always enable a deal rather than obstruct or create problems
Working closely with my clients and never losing sight of their commercial objectives and transaction timetable, my main specialism (in addition to undertaking all general areas of commercial property) is the acquisition, management and disposal of large investment properties.
Over the past two years alone I have facilitated projects across London, the Thames Valley and as far north as Manchester, Leeds and Harrogate, as well as Gloucestershire.
There is no “typical” transaction that I advise on but it can often include lettings to international brands and global plcs with disposals and acquisitions ranging from £1m to £22m as well as refinance exercises within the same brackets.
I have a down to earth and pragmatic approach and see myself as a crucial member of any client’s team, ensuring their aims are met and helping to facilitate each deal.
