I was a founding Partner of the firm and have played a major role in the management and development of the practice. 

For many years, I specialised in airport property and also have extensive experience in the licensed/leisure property field, acting for household name clients in both areas. 

Now a consultant with the firm and still involved in practice development, I also hold a number of roles building on my entrepreneurial background and legal skills.  As founding Chair of Derby Museums Trust - a key role in change management in the city – I have helped lead the organisation from local authority control to a successful independent status which has attracted national attention. 

I am active in regulatory work for a number of professions including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and am an independent member of the Standards Committees of two local authorities. I have experience as an adjudicator in tenancy disputes for the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and am an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
