I joined Lewis Silkin in August 2017 as a paralegal in the Real Estate and Dispute Resolution teams.
I studied for my law degree in Nottingham before moving to London in 2014. Prior to joining Lewis Silkin I worked at another city law firm and also volunteered at South West London Law Centre, advising clients on a range of Housing and Employment matters.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, trying new restaurants and exercising. I also love to travel and have visited six of the seven continents so far.
I work across all areas of real estate litigation and am able to assist with a wide range of client queries and matters. On a regular basis, I act for landlords on a number of housing and property related matters including:
- possession claims; injunction applications; disrepair matters; non-occupation; rent arrears recovery; shared ownership; non-succession; handling anti-social behaviour
- I also regularly advise clients on leasehold enfranchisement and in particular handle a number of lease extension claims under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 on behalf of both landlords and tenants
- I also have experience and knowledge in taking legal action against trespassers and squatters; 1954 Act lease renewals; break notices; forfeiture proceedings and general termination of leases
