My clients include banks, debt funds, corporates, real estate investors and developers, fintechs and investors into debt funds and platform lenders.

The sectors in which I most often work include real estate, fintech, technology, hotel and leisure, student accommodation and life sciences.

I enjoy building high performing teams, establishing long-term client relationships, innovating solutions, delivering an outstanding client service and helping clients structure and close complex transactions.

I am ranked as a "leading individual" for Banking and Real Estate Finance by the leading legal directories Best Lawyers, Chambers and the Legal 500 and have been described by them as "pragmatic and commercial", leading a team that is "innovative and proactive" and that "decodes complex legal concepts into easily understandable language" and that I have "enormous energy and commitment on complex transactions".

My experience includes: 

  • Advising lenders and borrowers on a range of development and investment financings in the UK, including a range of operating assets (hotels, student accommodation, care homes) as well as retail, office and logistics
  • Advising an international lender on a range of debt financings in the innovation industries(fintech/life sciences/ tech)
  • Advising overseas investors on the rescue by way of debt purchase, refinancing and rebranding, of a UK hotel portfolio that was in receivership
  • Acting for a Nordic financial institution on its loan on loan financings to UK platform lenders, helping create much needed liquidity in the CBILs and RLS markets following the Covid 19 pandemic
