Location / Sherborne

I am a Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer and Joint Head of Agriculture & Rural Property.

I advise landowners, farmers and agricultural tenants on matters associated with the ownership and occupation of land such as sales and purchases of farms / land, easements, tenancy agreements and secured lending.

Prior to joining the Agriculture & Rural Property team in 2019, I worked within Battens' Commercial Property Team advising clients on matters such of acquisition and disposal of commercial property as well as Landlord & Tenant matters such as leases and licences.

I moved to England in 1989 to pursue a career in showjumping and eventing prior to joining Battens in 2007.

In my spare time I enjoy competing on my horse and racing my RS400 sailing dinghy.

"I would like to personally thank you and commend you on your outstanding professional and timely work to get our mutual client’s farm to exchange and completion in such a challenging timescale and dealing with the buyers team of solicitors.  And to follow this up advising our mutual clients on the purchase of their new farm in an even shorter timescale.  A monumental effort without which this would not have happened in 4 weeks. Amazing work."
