I’m the Chair of the firm, helping to steer strategy and representing the firm externally.

I have an active practice advising clients on a wide range of real estate developments and investments across a number of market sectors including hotels, offices, industrial, retail and leisure.

There’s often an international dimension to my work and I enjoy dealing with companies and lawyers from many different countries.

As a co-founder of the firm over 30 years ago it’s very important to me that, with my name over the door, everything we do is of a quality of which I can be proud.
