I have been with Battens since qualifying and have developed particular expertise in all aspects of the commercial property sectors. I have over 40 years’ experience of providing pro-active commercial advice to a wide range of businesses, in both the public and private sectors as well as within the agricultural sector.

Over the years, I have acted for such clients as Burmah Castrol Group, Westland Helicopters, Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, various public sector organisations and many smaller businesses and licensed premises.

I am a past president of the Somerset Law Society and have acted as chairman to the Legal Services Commission’s Funding Review and as a clerk to the Tax Commissioners.
