Director • Kendal
I specialise in commercial matters (company disposals, acquisitions, management buy-outs, shareholder and partnership agreements, business start-ups) and property matters (for business, private individuals and agricultural clients).
Having studied a law degree at Durham University, I qualified as a solicitor with Nabarro LLP in London in 1999. I then joined the commercial property department of Burges Salmon LLP where I became an Associate and latterly worked for the agricultural department. In 2007 I joined Hayton Winkley and became a Director in 2012. I work from both our Kirkby Losndale office and Rural Law Practice at Junction 36. I became a Director in May 2020.
Having developed considerable expertise in commercial, property and agricultural matters, I always aim to combine empathy and understanding with an efficient and practical approach.
I am married with three children and live in Sedbergh - with strong connections to Sedbergh School as I am the wife to one of the Housemasters. I enjoy walking in the fells and am fluent in French often enjoying French holidays with my family.
