Moore Blatch moves to new City of London office as expansion continues
As the firm’s managing partner I have overall executive responsibility for Moore Blatch’s business and strategic direction.
As a practising lawyer I specialise in rural property; typically acting for property owning families, businesses, trusts and individuals. I have extensive experience in development land, commercial property, farms, landed estates and country homes.
I am also a member of the firm’s rural services team which specialises in all aspects of legal advice relating to this sector, including wills and trusts, tax and succession planning, business and partnership arrangements as well as land, property and development transactions.
I’m approachable and responsive and provide comprehensive advice that is easy to understand and tailored to my clients’ needs.
Prior to reading law I read history at Edinburgh University.
