Location / Yeovil

I am an experienced property litigation solicitor and head our Property Dispute Resolution Team. In that role, I am able to utilise my experience and expertise in both property and litigation, and to deploy a great depth of understanding on behalf of my clients.

The cases I handle include all aspects of property litigation and cover: rights of way, boundary disputes, restrictive covenants, nuisance, trespass, adverse possession and rights to light. I also deal with disagreements arising from commercial leases and residential tenancies, dilapidations and property defects, lease renewals, service charges and gaining possession.

I handle cases involving property fraud, including those where the property is located overseas and was bought as an investment.

I enjoy the challenge of resolving disputes in as quick and cost-effective a manner as possible. Ideally, this will be by negotiation, but if the disagreement has to be concluded through the court system, I am able to pursue formal steps quickly and efficiently so as to achieve the best possible results.

I am a member of the Property Litigation Association, the Royal Town Planning Institute and the Planning Panel.

I joined Battens in 1998 as a trainee and qualified as a solicitor in 2000. I became a senior associate in 2005, Director in 2016 and Managing Director in 2021.

I have two children, and enjoy watching rugby now that my playing days are over.
