My experience includes large portfolio appraisals, large-scale strategic development viability and the acquisition and disposal of land, acting for landowners in both the private and public sectors.

I have invaluable experience in residential development, from acquisition and disposals, acting for landowners and some of the leading registered providers in the South of England. This is with a key focus on advising on the delivery and viability of all types of development land-led opportunities through innovative delivery solutions.”
