In her free time Sarah enjoys cycling, running, skiing and attending music concerts.


No two property disputes are the same, and I enjoy working through what is often a very complicated set of facts to obtain a satisfactory legal or commercial solution for my client. I am pragmatic and recognise the need to be aware of the commercial reality of the situation as well as the legal complexities. Often, resolution is achieved through alternative dispute resolution rather than the courts.
