I am a Partner in our Residential Property Department based in St. Albans. I handle a wide range of matters including residential sales, purchases, transfers of equity and remortgages. Whilst I deal with many different property matters, my years’ of experience has led me to tend to specialise in high value transactions.
I feel that momentum is key to successfully progressing on high value transactions, therefore, I am renowned for moving quickly and aim for swift turnaround times. As communication is such an important part of any transaction, where I can, I always respond to clients on the same day.
I regularly act as the main point of contact on transactions and am responsible for drafting and negotiating documentation, overseeing the drafting and review of conditions precedent, general deal management and wider client interaction.
I am responsible for training the Trainee Solicitors in the Residential Property Department – it has been and continues to be fantastic to help the trainees learn and develop in the legal careers.
In addition, I am also the Business Development Partner for the Residential Property Department and oversee the relationships and agreements with our main work referrers and introducers.
Cricket, sport in general and travelling.
Joined Taylor Walton in 2011
