I prac­tice in a broad range of prop­er­ty, build­ing and con­struc­tion trans­ac­tions adopt­ing a prac­ti­cal and com­mon-sense approach with my clients and oth­er par­ties in all my deal­ings. I enjoy col­lab­o­rat­ing with clients to achieve the best pos­si­ble out­come for each transaction. 

My prop­er­ty prac­tice includes the sale and acqui­si­tion of res­i­den­tial homes, apart­ment com­plex­es, off-the-plan devel­op­ments and both indus­tri­al and com­mer­cial sites, includ­ing mul­ti-storey ful­ly or par­tial­ly ten­ant­ed build­ings and sites.
