I am head of the commercial property team at Archers, having joined the firm in September 2015. The commercial property team at Archers comprises five experienced solicitors, specialising in all areas of commercial property, along with agricultural property and complex/high value residential transactions.
My experience includes working on a range of commercial property transactions, advising a number of public and private companies, public bodies (including a number of educational establishments) and charities on all elements of property work. I act for a variety of landlords and tenants in negotiating commercial leases and associated agreements and licences, as well as acting on numerous site acquisitions and disposals, involving the negotiation of conditional contracts, option agreements, development agreements and overage arrangements. I also have experience of undertaking project and corporate support work, and acting for a number of commercial organisations in relation to the refinance of property portfolios.
The Legal 500 recognises the Archers Law commercial property team as a ‘very knowledgeable, professional and personal’ team that ‘listens to the client’s full situation and reviews all documentation thoroughly before providing advice’. I am recognised in the Legal 500 for my ‘personal approach’.
