My role

I am a partner and lead the property litigation team. I advise clients including registered providers, charities and local authorities on property-related disputes.

I have experience of a wide range of estate management issues, including 1954 Act lease renewals, dilapidations claims, service charge disputes, rent arrears claims, insolvency issues and forfeiture and possession proceedings, break clause disputes and breach of alienation and user provisions.

I also advise clients in connection with the proper interpretation and effect of conditional sale agreements, option and overage agreements; applications for, and objections to, adverse possession and prescriptive rights claims; restrictive covenants and nuisance/trespass claims.

My experience

I am a member of the Property Litigation Association and ranked in the Legal 500 as a Next Generation Partner. I am experienced in acting for clients in court proceedings, arbitrations and expert determinations.
