I qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and hold more than 9 years post-qualification experience. I deal with all aspects of agricultural law, including the purchase, sale and mortgaging of land and property; tenancies, leases and licences in all their various guises; partnership agreements; the sale, purchase or lease of sporting rights; and specific matters relating to utility and renewable energy companies.
I have specific experience of issues relating to common land, grazing rights, manorial rights and rights of way, in addition to dealing with complex commercial transactions where agricultural property is involved. I am a member of the Agricultural Law Association.
I also deal with residential property transactions, covering sales, purchases and remortgages.
Born and raised in Gloucestershire, I initially studied geography at the University of Edinburgh, leading to work at the Royal Geographical Society in London and also an expedition undertaking climate change research in Antarctica. I retrained as a solicitor at the University of Law, Birmingham, before relocating to the north west in 2007, where I have focussed on agricultural law, in the process developing a deep understanding of the particular issues and complexities unique to the farming community. In doing so, I have assisted many members of the agricultural community with their legal matters.
