I am Head of Commercial Property in our Bath office and have over twenty years of experience advising clients in the city of Bath and surrounding areas.
My main areas of expertise are transactional commercial property work, including sales and purchases, commercial leases and lease renewals, development and strategic land transactions and secured lending work. I am also adept at handling wider commercial client requirements, including business sales and acquisitions, corporate transactions, shareholders’ and partnership agreements and general commercial contracts.
I qualified as a solicitor in 1997 and worked in London and for a variety of firms in the South West, most recently practicing at Mowbray Woodwards and Goughs, before joining Battens in November 2020.
Clients are able to draw upon my wide-ranging experience advising a variety of organisations and individuals - from Government departments and large institutional pension schemes, charities and major house builders to small business owners, private landlords and tenants. My expertise also spans a range of sectors, including; development, media, leisure, industrial, retail and secured lending.
Renowned for my long-standing client relationships and commitment to quality service, I have a strong network of clients and colleagues and thrive on getting results. In my free time I love to ski, cycle and am a season ticket holder at Norwich City. I'm also a guitar player and keen ornithologist.
