Me in a minute

I enjoy the personal interaction and working relationships that I have built up

I was delighted to join Withers' real estate team in early 2016 to be head of real estate disputes. I have many years of experience but most recently have been advising family businesses who have substantial property holdings with contentious issues to be resolved. I enjoy the personal interaction and working relationships that I have built up.
