I am an experienced property lawyer who is quick to respond with an eye for detail. I am a partner within the Property team.

My areas of expertise include:

  • development land;
  • commercial property;
  • joint ventures;
  • acquisitions;
  • land assembly;
  • options;
  • conditional contracts;
  • overage agreements;
  • promotion agreements;
  • planning and infrastructure agreements;
  • development agreements;
  • lettings and disposals; and
  • landlord and tenant.

My broad range of clients, both large and small, include property developers, landlords, investors, occupational tenants, housing associations, lenders, educational and charitable
establishments and private individuals.

I have built up particular expertise in dealing with complex property development matters including promotion agreements.

I am the company secretary (on a voluntary basis) of the New Forest Enterprise Centre.

Joanne was a breath of fresh air! She acted diligently whilst paying great attention to the small detail in what became one of the swifter industrial lettings I have been involved with recently once “into solicitor’s hands”. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
