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.
Before joining Withers I had a three-month sabbatical during which I sailed across the South Atlantic as part of a round-the-world yacht race. This has given me a ‘new lease of life’ to tackle the great variety of problems which come across my desk.
