I completed an LLB Hons degree at Newcastle University followed by the Solicitors Finals Examination at the College of Law at Lancaster Gate in London.
I then trained with and worked for a London firm specialising in media law before joining Whitehead Monckton in 1987. I became a partner the following year and then became a Director when the firm incorporated to a Limited Company in April 2014. I specialise in commercial property work.
Listed as a leading individual for Agriculture in Chambers for 2017 ("an excellent lawyer and a nice bloke to boot.")
