I have responsibility for the Business Space Lease Advisory team at Colliers, but spend the majority of my time advising investors and occupiers on how to 'add value' on lease event transactions.

Since qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor in 1997 I have worked with some of the biggest names in this sector, using my negotiation skills and market knowledge to achieve significant savings and cash receipts for clients.


I have a great record as an Expert Witness in arbitration disputes and I have a 100% success rate achieved over many years in obtaining better outcomes for clients compared to the position pre-dispute.

I act as a 'sherpa' to our clients - I hope to seen as a trusted advisor and problem solver providing guidance to customers and leading them through a complex lease advisory process.
