I have lived and worked in the Essex area all of my life. I qualified as a solicitor with a local firm of solicitors and have worked for other firms in the Essex area.
I specialise in commercial and high value residential property transactions. I act for commercial and business clients, company directors, property investors and people with property portfolios. I will deal with all types of commercial property transactions including drafting and advising on business leases, managing property portfolios, drafting licences to assign, leases, lease extensions and renewals.
I have been involved in all aspects of residential development and new build work from small developments through to large sites covering many acres with hundreds of houses and flats.
Outside Interests: As a new father to a baby boy I spend all the free time I have with him. Prior to fatherhood I was a keen cricketer playing for a local village team and I trained in mixed martial arts.
I have lived and worked most of my life in the local area and attended the Brentwood School before venturing further afield to go to University in Birmingham. When I finished University I returned home and qualified as a solicitor at another local Romford firm before joining Capstick Dale where I have worked in the Property department for 20 years.
My work is predominantly commercial and represents the typical cross section of property work that a busy high street practice such as Capstick Dale and Partners encounter. This includes the grant of commercial leases, unit sales and purchases and acting for pension schemes.
In respect of residential work I continue to act on a number of leasehold, new build development and high value transactions and in addition supervise the work of others within the department.
I believe that my clients find me knowledgeable and approachable – and always happy to listen and help where I can. Certainly I have built up a good working relationship with many local businesses and repeat clients during my time at the firm.
Outside interests: A sports and in particular football fan (mostly now armchair or pub based). Otherwise enjoy good food, and time with friends and family .
Litigation and Dispute Resolution Team.
I trained and qualified in 1994 as a Solicitor at a West End London firm where I remained until I moved to a well-established provincial firm of solicitors in Chelmsford where I continued to deal with various areas of civil and commercial litigation and dispute resolution. After setting up and running a Litigation Department for another firm I opened and ran my own practice until I joined Capstick-Dale & Partners in 2011. I continue to act for individuals, partners, companies, directors, shareholders and clients from all walks of life. I’ve built a reputation for having detailed technical knowledge of the law and its procedures coupled with an intuitive commercial approach to resolving many different types of legal disputes. My work invariably comes from recommendations including from long-standing clients. I “say it as it is” by giving clear, sensible and commercial advice to clients whilst remaining empathic and understanding of clients’ needs and objectives.
As a commercial and civil litigator I help to resolve disputes involving companies, directors, shareholders, partners, LLP’s and individuals regarding matters including debts, consumer issues, contracts, negligence, professional negligence, misrepresentation and breach of trust. I also deal with employment Settlement Agreements. I act for letting agents, private or commercial landlords and private or commercial tenants regarding repossession, disrepair, tenancy renewals, enfranchisement and property-related claims for damages. I also deal with injunctions, land ownership/boundary and rights of way disputes. My work includes insolvency-related litigation acting for Trustees in Bankruptcy, Liquidators and Administrators which enables me to also act for and strategically advise individuals or businesses with debt issues whether clients are creditors or debtors. I also deal with the buying and selling of businesses for clients. I also provide good, sound advice on the drafting of documents for commercial as well as private clients.
Outside interests: I still enjoy playing competitive football in a veterans’ league, and enjoy golf and other sports.
