In their words

"Delivering regeneration in the context of the current budgeting and economic climate is challenging and requires a partnership and commercial approach from both stakeholders and advisors. I have enjoyed working with a variety of stakeholders on creating opportunities and delivering projects and I believe it has given me a better understanding of the legal and commercial requirements of the parties in these transactions. It is rewarding to come up with solutions acceptable to all parties which overcome the many barriers to delivery which exist."
