I joined Gerald Eve’s Glasgow team in 2004 and have since gained a wealth of professional practice experience, latterly acting as the principal point of contact for Scottish Lease Consultancy instructions (lease re-structuring and rent reviews). I am a Member of the RICS and an RICS Registered Valuer.
My specialism is rent reviews, lease renewals and re-structuring, dispute resolution, and asset management initiatives across all property types, including children’s nurseries, ground leases, industrial/storage, leisure, office, retail and pharmacy premises. I advise clients on all aspects of the lease event process from budgeting, negotiation, identifying and securing opportunities to extract value, and preparing submissions in the capacity of an Expert Witness for Arbitration and Independent Expert Determinations in the event an amicable agreement can’t be reached.
I co-ordinate and undertake instructions on behalf of a well-known Scottish business with a UK-wide industrial and office portfolio. Our service is a ‘one-stop-shop’ assisting with all their property requirements and queries which includes regular reporting on matters such as acquisition and disposal of premises, compulsory purchase, rating appeals, re-instatement cost assessments and valuation.
Examples of some current clients I work with include AG Barr, ATS, Azzurri Group, Bestway, Burger King, Capita, Co-operative Group, Costa, EDF Energy, Pizza Express, Scottish Ambulance Service, Tarmac, TGI Friday, WHSmith, Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow & Stirling, and Yodel. I have developed great relationships with these clients over the years, enjoy learning about them and their business, and understanding how I can work together with them to meet their property needs.
