I qualified as a solicitor in 2003. I studied law at De Montfort and London Guildhall universities and I also have a degree in business studies from the University of East Anglia. Prior to moving to the private sector in 2017 I worked in the public sector as the Head of Legal and Democratic Services for an urban local authority, with particular responsibility for development work, landlord and tenant, planning and infrastructure agreements, public governance and information compliance, and I was also a consultant legal advisor to a number of local authority planning committees. Since moving to the private sector I have dealt with a variety of freehold and leasehold commercial property transactions for a wide variety of clients including investors and lenders, retail, health providers distribution and logistics clients. I also deal with planning matters and infrastructure agreements.
Outside work I am a trustee for the Suffolk Young Peoples Health Project known as 4YP which provides services to young people in Suffolk up to age 25 who need help with mental and physical wellbeing issues. I also have a longstanding interest in the arts.
