David qualified as a Solicitor in October 2006 and joined Birketts in December 2018 as a Legal Director in our Commercial Property Team.
Prior to joining Birketts, David worked for 15 years for a regional law firm based in Essex. Whilst David has a broad range of experience in respect of commercial property matters, he has a particular specialism in residential development. David regularly acts for both national and regional house builders, helping them to unlock the development potential of land across the UK. He routinely acts for house builders in the context of options, land acquisition and site assembly, land promotion and joint venture projects. He also has experience in the related area of development finance, helping his housebuilder clients to navigate from term sheets to drawdown as quickly and simply as possible.
Whilst working for his previous firm, his successes include the completion of a development of airspace above commercial premises in London with a gross development value of £10m and the refinance of a portfolio of development sites with a combined gross development value of £37m.
David is based in our Cambridge office.
