After studying law at Oxford I spent time practising law in the City of London before moving to Northampton to become a partner at Scott Fowler in 2003. I have been the managing partner for over five years, overseeing the successful handover of the firm from the founding fathers to the next generation.
My background is property law both commercial and residential. During my early years as a solicitor in London I specialised in commercial property, acting for a range of sizeable property investment and development companies, as well as large supermarket chains and well known lending institutions.
When joining Scott Fowler as a partner in 2003, I established and grew our commercial property team. We support local developers, investors, landlords and tenants. We also provide legal advice to clients generally on their business interests, including business sales or purchases.
More recently my work has also extended into the residential development sector, acting for both developers and investors at home and abroad. I am currently the head of our Residential Property Department, and work with a highly skilled and experienced team of solicitors and conveyancing experts in providing a high level of personal service to our ever increasing client base.
As an owner and the manager of the firm, I aim to bring a commercially minded approach and real life experience to the needs of clients in the property and business environment. No matter how small or large, all strategies and transactions face obstacles along the way and, as your solicitor, I combine commercial understanding with legal knowledge so as to find ways to overcome these challenges with the minimum of fuss.
