What makes me tick?

I love getting involved in new projects and developments in the local area. I enjoy helping local charities and not for profit organisations to improve our city through the empty homes project. I also enjoy helping people with their new business ventures and talking them through the legal process to try to find business solutions that will balance achieving their results as quickly as possible, whilst minimising their risks to an acceptable level. I try to explain things in plain English and avoid legal jargon! Most of my work comes from existing clients and recommendations, and I hope this will continue.

My experience

I am a senior Solicitor with over 10 years’ experience in Commercial Property. I joined James Legal in 2013 and work with a great team. I head up the Property Department, assisting colleagues in both residential and commercial property transactions.

Outside of work

Sad but true... I love property. Outside of work I enjoy renovating property myself so understand the stresses clients face on projects! I am not all work though – I also enjoy going for nice long walks away from the city, running (well more of a steady jog but we all love a trier!) and travel. I love seeing the world, especially when it’s an adventure holiday with little else booked other than the flights, and seeing where the mood takes us!

What I do?

I specialise in the following legal and business areas:

  • Supporting individuals, businesses, investors, developers and commercial lenders on a wide range of property transactions, including office, retail, industrial and agricultural sectors
  • Commercial Property Sales Purchases and Re-financing
  • Commercial Leases (acting for landlords and tenants), including new leases, lease assignments and underleases
  • Business Sales and Purchases
  • Pension fund SIPP and SASS acquisitions
  • Option Agreements
  • Conditional Contracts
  • Development sites/projects
