My role

I lead a team of property lawyers to deliver education, local government and social business work. In relation to schools and diocese I advise to help them convert to academies. In the social business sector I deal with leisure industry clients. The local government sector involves me working very closely with a public/private partnership helping them achieve their goals set in relation to identified properties which need to be purchased within set time scales.

My experience

I have experience in working with the Department for Education, schools, local authorities and social businesses. I appreciate and understand that some of these clients are not commercial and so I provide more detailed and hands-on support where necessary.
