Senior Associate


I am a Senior Associate in our Lease Consultancy team and specialise in rent reviews, lease renewals and lease re-gears of offices, restaurants and retail premises. I advise clients throughout their lease event, from providing budgets and advising on the interpretation of leases to negotiation and conclusion of cases. I also act as an Expert Witness in rent review disputes before Arbitrators and Independent Experts.

I am experienced in providing strategic advice to landlords across their portfolios on a wide range of properties. I have particular experience in Soho and Leicester Square, negotiating rent reviews and lease renewals on a variety of asset classes, including offices, restaurants and retail premises.

I frequently negotiate rent review disputes and lead lease renewal negotiations for large corporate occupiers of office premises across Central London and the South East.

I act on behalf of a broad variety of both landlord and occupier clients. In central London my clients include Soho Estates, Grosvenor, Christ’s Hospital, Raymond Estates and The Harpur Trust. I also provide advice to large corporate occupiers throughout London and the South East including Arthur J Gallagher, IWG and Towergate.
