My Expertise

I have particular expertise in the retail and local government sectors and find cost-effective solutions to resolve disputes, portfolio management issues and other problems which arise from real estate transactions.

Read more about me

I advise on issues such as the recovery of rent, dilapidations claims, the service of break notices, lease renewal claims (both opposed and unopposed), disputes relating to breaches of covenant and claims for possession of property.

I advise developers at the strategic stages of developments and upon asset management issues upon completion.

My experience includes dealing with proceedings in the County Court, the High Court and the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) and I have a wide experience of using alternative methods to resolve disputes, such as mediation or arbitration, where appropriate.

I have a particular niche expertise in the field of non-domestic rates avoidance strategies, having advised upon one of the leading reported High Court cases in this area in 2012 (R (on the application of Makro Properties Ltd) v Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council [2012] EWHC 2250).
