In recent years, I've handled a variety of matters for leading financial institutions, asset managers and developers drafting and negotiating leases, producing reports, sale and purchase contracts and ancillary documents. I also have expertise assisting with corporate transactions in renewable energy including wind, solar, energy storage and energy efficiency - at times from the developer side and at other times from the investor side. This allows for a full understanding of this type of project. Due diligence and project management are crucial to these real estate finance and renewable deals. In addition, I have extensive experience acting for institutional investors, and on portfolio acquisitions, disposals and development work both in the UK and internationally.A commercial understanding of our client's business is key to us providing a great client service to suit the individual commercial needs of each of our client's.
