What do you do?
I advise clients in all areas of property. For example, acting for landlords and tenants in lease negotiations relating to a wide range of properties. For high street and private banks in secured lending transactions, and for clients buying and selling commercial and residential property, with a particular focus on residential development. I’m particularly interested in supporting sustainable housing.
It’s been a great step for me, joining Carbon. Now I can play to my strengths, enjoy greater autonomy, and use the flexible working environment to my professional and clients’ advantage. I’m already far busier than I expected to be so soon after the switch.
How do you make a difference for your clients?
I like to give my clients flexibility and put them at ease by working with them wherever it’s convenient for them. That could be remotely, in a meeting room at our office, at a coffee shop, a client’s office, and sometimes in a portakabin! I also try to be always available, and responsive to their needs. I think many of them really appreciate the efforts I’ll go to, to meet them in person.
Tell us about your achievements?
I've worked with top law firms in London, including Lawrence Graham, Clegg Manuel and Fladgate. Most recently I was with Cook & Co in Bristol. But I think all my top achievements fall under one heading: building up my own practice with Carbon. For me, that outshines anything I'd achieved before that. And being part of such a supportive and flexible team is great - I know the achievements will keep piling up.
