I read law at Girton College, Cambridge before qualifying as a solicitor in 1985. I joined Gordon Dadds in 2014 from Davenport Lyons, where I was a Partner from 2003. Before that I was at Speechly Bircham where I became partner when 3 years qualified. My practice encompasses all aspects of commercial property investment together with commercial and residential development, including greenfield and brownfield redevelopment and city centre/urban regeneration as well as landlord and tenant and retail work, acting for both landlords and tenants. I am experienced in complex transactional projects acting for both companies and institutions. Outside of work I enjoy collecting Apollo moon landing memorabilia, collecting antique silver and Italy.
