I have recently joined the team at Devonshires, based in our fast-growing Leeds office. Having come from a specialist property litigation team, acting for mostly private landlords, it is an exciting opportunity to have exposure to a wide variety of landlord and tenant matters, acting for registered providers of social housing.
I started my career in London, working with social housing landlords on a wide range of contentious matters including possession claims for breach of tenancy, tenancy fraud, anti-social behaviour, and access injunctions. Since then, my experience has spanned into commercial property matters, acting for one of Britain’s major telecommunications operators, representing their interests in various real estate matters relating to the telecommunications Code. I have since broadened my practice into both residential and commercial contentious property matters and I look forward to developing and applying this knowledge in my new role.
Re-locating to my hometown of Leeds has allowed me to enjoy a varied lifestyle, commuting into the busy and thriving city of Leeds to work alongside my colleagues during the week, whilst enjoying the national parks and wide-ranging countryside at the weekends. My role with Devonshires also means that a visit to our London office is never too far away, and it’s great to meet and collaborate with the wider team.
Since joining just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been working on leasehold advisory work in light of the Building Safety Act 2022, which is a prominent topic affecting some of our major clients. I have received a warm welcome from the team and look forward to getting involved in varied and interesting work over the coming months.
