My role

I am the lead for our property department, which comprises our property, construction and housing management teams.

I also lead one of our teams that specialises in acting for housing associations, which covers their full range of property needs. I deliver development, joint ventures and stock rationalisation work. I also deliver major projects, such as stock transfers and other large scale property transactions.

My experience

I began my career acting for corporate occupiers, then moved into acting for private developers and a regional development agency. Since joining Anthony Collins Solicitors in 2004, I've used my property experience to support a range of housing and third/public sector clients (including local authorities, charities, health and social care providers) across the full range of property needs.

My specialisms

  • Property development
  • Stock rationalisation
  • Joint ventures
  • Stock transfers
Contracts – paying the price for unachievable targets

The Lifeline Project was a well-regarded charity. Failure to carry out the targets within the contracts led the charity into insolvency and resulted in a personal, 7-year disqualification order.
