I joined Smith Partnership in 1992 and am Head of the Commercial Property team. I have over 30 years of experience and have dealt with a large cross section of complex commercial property matters. My clients include many private sector clients involved in development schemes and property finance together with complex landlord and tenant matters.
My experience includes site assembly and development, property finance, investment acquisition and funding agreements and the negotiation of institutionally acceptable leases.
The Commercial Property team have been the headline sponsor of the Derby Property Summit, an event attended by over 500 property specialists where I led a seminar on the difficulties faced by city centres and unlocking their potential.
I have acted on behalf of a US client who specialises in the sterilisation of medical equipment used by the NHS and other medical providers in relation to the purchase of land from Henry Boot Developments Limited and subsequent development agreement for the construction of a bespoke factory with a value in excess of £10 million.
I have also acted for clients in relation to a new facility with HSBC Bank plc with a value of approximately £8 million. This will enable the clients to acquire further land for development purposes.
