My Expertise

I act for clients across a range of sectors with a particular focus on the hotel and leisure sector. I advise on all real estate matters, in particular those relating to property management, investment, development, acquisition and disposal as well as portfolio transactions.

Read more about me

My clients include a number of household names along with listed and private developers. Many of my clients have aggressive development programmes and are seeking niche sector expertise that will help them to achieve commercial objectives for growth.

I am described by a FTSE 100 Managing Director as "very thorough, knowledgeable and diligent. David is straightforward and I like that".

Within the hotel and leisure sector I advise a range of hotel, brewery and restaurant companies, including franchised operators and owners and operators under hotel management agreements. Experience ranges from the sale of a £75m portfolio of pub properties to managing the process for a regional brewer on the grant of tenancy agreements across its estate

Development experience includes listed and private developers on office, residential and commercial space including forward funding and sales and JV arrangements.
