I am an associate in our Banking & Finance Group in London, where I advise both our lender and borrower clients on development, acquisition and growth financing as well as refinancing transactions.

I qualified as a solicitor of England and Wales in 2016 into the Real Estate Finance department of my previous firm, and have been a member of the Bird & Bird Banking and Finance Group in London since summer 2018.

I firmly believe in the importance of team work across the Bird & Bird network to ensure that the right technical expertise is utilised to help deliver our clients' goals, and also to ensure that each matter runs smoothly from start to finish.

Together with a close focus on transaction management and coordination across all parties involved this really makes sure that we are able to provide the best level of service to our clients.

In addition I have spent some time on secondment at Legal & General Investment Management, which has proved invaluable for really understanding exactly what clients want and how best to deliver in the most effective way possible.

  • As well as borrower work relating to property financings and loan maintenance I have advised a number of large investment banks on the financing of multi-jurisdictional property portfolios, various debt funds in relation to high-growth companies and have worked on development bank financing.
