I am a partner in DWF’s Liverpool Real Estate team. My speciality includes negotiating development agreements, forward funding agreements, grant funding agreements, exclusivity agreements, site assembly or disposal and lettings, advising both public and private sector clients. I act for developers, landlords and property companies in the acquisition or disposal of sites, letting and disposal of a variety of commercial, industrial and mixed-use schemes. My expertise includes advising on grant funding agreements including ERDF agreements and associated documentation.
I have taken the lead role in two flagship complex mixed-use developments in the North West, containing offices, retail, leisure, supermarket, hotels, cinema, public realm and residential apartments and led a major forward funding deal worth £47m for the construction of 140,000sq.ft of commercial space in the North West.
I also support our technology, media and telecoms sector groups and advise public and private sector clients in relation to data centre leases.
My team delivers an estate management function for an industrial fund's investment portfolio worth £625m. We work closely with the fund’s asset managers to ensure an understanding of the strategy and proposed exit routes for the fund which in turn enables the team to advise practically and commercially on the day to day transactions. The team includes colleagues from Real Estate Litigation and as such the client is provided with all round advice and a full analysis of the risks associated with a transaction.
I also deal with the acquisitions and disposals for the fund ensuring compliance with the fund’s requirements, approval processes and any bank requirements.
I am a member of DWF's Diversity Steering Group.
