On any given day I could be dealing with a variety of tasks. This includes advising enquirers and clients on their landlord and tenant disputes, preparing and serving notices to recover rent arrears or possession of a property, drafting and filing witness statements for upcoming hearings, partaking in mediation or researching and reviewing legal precedents pertinent to my clients’ matters.
Litigation tends to be procedural but often unpredictable in nature. My matters are generally multifaceted which means liaising with different parties and following the correct procedures while dealing with any last minute potential obstacles in a manner that is commercial sound and not detrimental to my clients’ objectives.
It is fulfilling when I am able to meet my clients’ goals and commercial objectives be it through successful court proceedings or early settlement or agreement.
- Contractual Disputes
- Possession Proceedings
- General Property Disputes

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2014 with an LLB following which I undertook the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School in Holborn. I decided to broaden my legal knowledge and experience by obtaining a Masters in Law from Queen Mary, University of London in 2015.
During my time as a Trainee Solicitor I acted for clients within the firm’s Conveyancing, Private Client and Litigation departments.
Within the Conveyancing department I was frequently instructed by clients on their purchases, sales (including new build and listed building transactions) and remortgages. Within the Private Client department I often took instructions and prepared Wills for clients, effected their Transfers of Equities and Declarations of Trust and assisted on probate matters. As part of the Litigation department I am frequently instructed by clients in their contractual disputes, landlord and tenant issues and other property matters.
