About

Professional Summary

I am a Chartered Surveyor and a lease advisory specialist and lead the Business Space Lease Advisory team at Colliers. My team specialises in the industrial, logistics and offices market sectors. We advise investors and occupiers on rent reviews, lease renewals and lease renegotiations. My role is to achieve the best possible value and outcomes for clients in negotiations.

I've worked as a specialist in the lease advisory sector since leaving university in 1995 and I joined Colliers in 1998. I have advised clients on most types of properties across the UK and now specialise in the logistics and offices market sectors in London, East Midlands and the South East.

I advise both occupiers and investors in negotiations and I am regularly appointed as an Expert Witness in dispute resolution cases.
