Julie is a Senior Associate based in our Manchester office working as part of the Rating team.

Julie joined Gerald Eve in 2014 and has over ten years’ experience in Rating starting her career at the Scottish Assessors Association where she was involved in both the 2005 & 2010 Rating Revaluations dealing primarily with Industrial properties.

Since relocating to the North West she has been working in private practice advising both occupiers and landlords in respect of business rates mitigation.

Specific experience
Julie has extensive experience of rating matters having dealt with both the 2005 & 2010 Rating lists, negotiating on various classes of property including retail, offices, industrials, golf clubs and garden centres alongside a number of licensed and local authority premises. This has included the preparation and presentation of cases at Valuation Tribunal as well as advising clients on non-appeal related matters to mitigate their rates liability including empty rates strategies and temporary relief applications.

Julie is also responsible for the day to day management – advising on rating strategy, providing budgetary advice and advising of changes to rating law – for a number of Gerald Eve’s clients including The University of Manchester, Wolseley UK, Blackpool Borough Council, Iceland Foods and The Fragrance Shop.
