Outside of the office, I enjoy an odd mix of activities including cycling, swimming, walking and boxing. Once or twice a year you’ll find me stowed away on a sailing yacht somewhere in the Med or, if I don’t fancy decent weather, somewhere off the west coast of Scotland. When I can’t get on something afloat, I enjoy travelling and exploring both at home and abroad.
Specialising in secured finance work, I act for a range of lender clients including PLC and bridging lenders in perfecting their security over a variety of property assets.
I have accumulated a wealth of experience in a wide range of property matters during my time as a solicitor having practised at regional, national and international firms and having the benefit of a 4 month secondment to a large co-operative organisation where I gained invaluable commercial experience. My property finance work extends to acting for leading lending institutions and bridging lenders both in day-to-day transactions and in complex lending transactions involving structures such as joint ventures, trusts and off-shore borrowers.
I am a solicitor in the Real Estate team, advising retail and industrial clients on acquisitions, disposals, site assembly and general commercial property matters. I also act for both landlords and tenants in commercial lease transactions including structures and negotiating documents.
