Moi en une minute
I enjoy recognising properties that have been involved in matters I have worked on.
I trained as a barrister completing a pupillage at Falcon Chambers in 2013 before then joining Withers. I find it hugely engaging marrying the rigour of technical property law together with the practical and commercial needs of my clients. At Withers, I encounter a dazzling range of legal issues and factual scenarios which is truly stimulating.
Whilst out and about I enjoy recognising properties that have been involved in matters I have worked on. They always look completely innocent of their history, even when I know they have been subject to the fiercest of disputes.
