I’m the firm’s Managing Partner and this involves chairing the firm's Executive Group, steering the strategic development of the firm, overseeing its implementation and representing the firm externally.

I also head up our Commercial Property team. My main areas of work include advising clients on a wide range of commercial property 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 25 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.
