I assist both private and corporate clients on a variety of commercial matters, recently dealing with:

  • copyright disputes;
  • commercial debts;
  • academic disputes; and
  • contract disputes.

I also undertake property litigation matters, including:

  • boundary disputes;
  • rights of way and easements;
  • ownership disputes;
  • landlord and tenant matters, including service of s21 and s8 notices, possession proceedings and tenancy deposit disputes;
  • neighbour disputes;
  • agricultural tenancies; and
  • removal of trespassers.

Work examples:

  • Representing clients at court in various possession claims including a claim against trespassers.
  • Advising on the status of an inherited agricultural tenancy.
  • Commencing bankruptcy proceedings on a debtor who was avoiding service and recovering substantial rent arrears and legal fees.
  •  Advising a software designer on a complex breach of copyright claim.
  • Assisting a university student to resist allegations of plagiarism.
  • Challenging a private parking penalty in the county court.
  •  Negotiating the grant of an easement.
  • Defending a contractual debt claim.

I am responsive to clients and give clear, practical advice to obtain good, commercial outcomes. I grasp technical matters quickly and always seek to work closely with my clients to keep them updated as matters progress.

Before qualifying as a solicitor, I spent two years in property litigation. Prior to studying law, I was a research fellow at UCL, and have a PhD in Neuroscience. I like to take a scientific approach to analysing a situation and finding the best way forward.

This is the best possible news! Thanks so much to both you and Helen for your expertise and wisdom in guiding this to such a successful outcome. Your steady hand and persistence paid off in the end.

Circumstances led us to a legal dispute, which for us, was unfamiliar and frightening. From the start Rachel was a tonic. She avidly listened, scrutinised our position and then gave us options for our best route forward. She always met us where we were, which felt important. We felt confident in her commitment throughout working with her. In a few words Rachel is professional, diligent and friendly. We felt lucky to have worked with Rachel.

You've been an absolute pleasure to work with and from the very offset I knew you were a good fit for us, professional yet friendly and very approachable. I can't thank you enough for all the efforts you've put in and for getting us to a place where I hope we can finally start to put all the negative experiences behind us and to move forward positively in our home as a family.
