How can I help you?
I qualified as a solicitor in 1983 and I have worked in the Chelmsford office for the whole of my career. I specialise in commercial property work and it would be fair to say I tend to handle the complex and unusual transactions. Quite often the sale or purchase will involve several parties and I will be negotiating with two or three firms of solicitors, your accountant, banker and surveyor.
In recent years I have worked more and more with insolvency practitioners on time critical disposals.
Since 1995 I have been responsible for a portfolio of telecom contracts. I have seen this business sector grow and the contractual provisions become more and more complicated. This area of work requires close attention to detail and a careful review strategy carried out in conjunction with the client’s surveyor.
I act for several small development companies typically building developments of up to 10 houses or apartments.
I have also built up quite a client base in the leisure sector with pub owners, hoteliers, nightclub owners and owners of golf clubs. I also act for two local golf clubs owned by their members and a football club playing at the highest level of non-league football.
