Steven qualified as a Solicitor in 1999 and joined Birketts in September 2014. He has a broad background with over 15 years' experience in commercial and residential property, most recently having worked for nearly seven years in the residential development team of a leading City law firm, specialising in residential and mixed use developments.
Steven specialises in acting for the major national housebuilders. His expertise includes portfolio sales and acquisitions, corporate acquisitions and disposals, strategic land issues, including land assemblies, option and overage agreements, promotion, co-operation and collaboration agreements. His work also involves dealing with development and infrastructure agreements – most recently having successfully concluded the legal documentation to enable provision of a 25 metre bridge over a railway to provide access to a development of circa 1500 dwellings.
Steven is regularly involved in the detailed set-up of large developments for plot disposals and deals with rent charge schemes, management company set-up and structures and affordable housing sales, including umbrella and golden brick schemes. Steven takes great pride in seeing a site he has worked on fully developed and occupied.
Steven is based at our Chelmsford office.
