I joined Lewis Silkin in 2013 as an associate with the Real Estate legal practice group.
I advise on a range of commercial property and planning matters but also have experience in dealing with property finance transactions.
The clients I work with include banks, media agencies, high net worth individuals, registered providers and a variety of retail and corporate occupiers.
Commercial Property - advising landlords or tenants on lettings or acquisitions from the initial review of heads of terms to the negotiation of the deal itself through to dealing with any stamp duty land tax implications or post completion requirements with the land registry. I often advise landlords or tenants on the implications of specific drafting often drawing in on the relevant commercial aspects of their business. In addition to transactional work I have ample experience with property management matters.
Planning – advising on a variety of planning matters specifically in relation the negotiation and agreement of planning documentation including section 106 and section 278 agreements.
Property Finance – advising lenders by preparing certificates of title after undertaking in-depth due diligence into the property which is to be allocated as security, managing the conditions precedents required under the facility and dealing with post completion aspects of the transaction at both the Land Registry and Companies House.
Advertising & Marketing
I work within the Advertising and Marketing sector with experience in working with media, consumer advertising, PR and creative communications agencies. Often the Advertising and Media clients that use Lewis Silkin’s Real Estate services need flexible working arrangements with unique working environments to match and I am often required to ensure that these needs can and will be met.
