About Louise

I am a senior associate solicitor in our Leasehold Enfranchisement team which sits with our wider real estate team.

My practice areas include lease extensions and freehold purchases and sales under the leasehold reform, housing and urban development Act 1993 and on a voluntary basis. I also deal with right to manage applications and freehold sales and purchases which are subject to the right of first refusal provisions under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987.

I work with individual and groups of private leaseholders, residents’ associations and companies and I also advise private and investment landlords, institutional lenders, national and regional house builders, developers and other landowners, retail companies and charities.

I have developed excellent working relationships with expert surveyors who specialise in this technical area of law. I am able to help my clients manage their property interests to their full potential, avoid pitfalls in the complex legislation, and achieve successful outcomes.

I am a published author on the subject of leasehold enfranchisement and write for News on the Block, a leaseholder publication and the Estates Gazette. I have also appeared for LexisNexis and the RICS as an industry leading expert.

I appeared as an Expert Witness and Forensic Solicitor before Bournemouth Crown Court in relation to a fraud trial for a missing landlord lease extension claim in 2016 (R v Ian McFarlane) where I assisted the prosecution in obtaining a guilty verdict on 5 accounts of fraud.

Outside of work I dote on my two puggles (pug cross beagles) and of course my husband. I also enjoy gardening and all things gin related!
