I’m a Partner and Head of Compensation here at Gerald Eve, based in the West End. I have more than 35 years’ experience of a wide range of valuation and other professional work but specialise in compulsory purchase and compensation, advising both acquiring authorities and claimants.
I advise acquiring authorities and developers and provide specialist advice on all aspects of compulsory purchase and compensation from the early stages through to negotiation and settlement of claims. In addition, I provide strategic and technical advice, and the negotiation of purchases by agreement, in advance of compulsory acquisition.
I have also been a member of various Government working parties and steering groups looking into improvements to compulsory purchase and compensation legislation, and regularly speak at seminars for surveyors and other professionals on compulsory purchase and compensation.
My key clients include: AS Watson (Superdrug, The Perfume Shop & Hutchison 3G), Budgen Stores, Costa, Fenwick, H Samuel, Jewson, Marks and Spencer, Ocado, WH Smith, Halfords, Sussex Yacht club, Grosvenor, Barratt Homes, Redrow Homes, Vodafone, Surrey County Council and Cheshire East Council.
