My expertise includes acting for clients in relation to rent reviews, service charge disputes, development agreements, lease renewals, dilapidations, rights of way, boundary disputes, trespass claims, restrictive covenants, rights to light, forfeiture, claims for rectification, the recovery of rent arrears and claims for possession.

In addition to real estate litigation I also have a wide range of experience in Alternative Dispute Resolution, having acted for clients in many mediations and expert determinations.

My recent cases include successfully defending a claim for £2.6m in relation to a residential development joint venture agreement.

I have acted for the Manchester Airport Group for a number of years dealing with matters ranging from the recovery of rent and service charge arrears, contested lease renewal proceedings, the enforcement of rent review determinations, advising upon the status of tenants of the World Freight Terminal and advising in relation to the redevelopment of the airport apron to allow for the service of the Emirates Airbus A380.

Developments that I have been involved in include, Bluecoat Arts Centre (Liverpool), Wythenshawe Shopping Centre, Great Homer Street (Liverpool), Ellesmere Shopping Centre (Walkden), Speke Shopping Centre and the Liverpool Garden Festival Site.

I act for a large range of clients including St Modwen Properties Plc, Peel Holdings, Williams Group, Liverpool City Council, Geodis Wilson, Robinsons and JW Lees.

Legal 500 said that I combine “a sound understanding of the law with a good appreciation of clients’ commercial concerns”. Chambers say that I am a “Good technical lawyer”.
