Caroline deals with in non-contentious landlord and tenant work and commercial conveyancing. She specialises in pension property work, transfers of businesses, and all non-contentious leasehold enfranchisement matters.

Caroline and her ‘excellent’ commercial property team have been recognised by Legal 500 (2017)
Examples of how Caroline has helped clients include:
- Caroline has helped a number of clients on complex pension property transactions required to restructure their pension property holdings to remain within statutory regulations while allowing funds to be injected or property to be released from the fund to deal with problems caused by the difficult economic climate. In some cases these have been carried out to a very tight time scale to meet lenders demands or the end of the tax year.
- She has completed secured lending on three large transactions each completed in less than 10 days. One involved a newly built development, one involved student accommodation bought prior to auction from LPA receivers and the third involved a refinance of assets being transferred from a trust to a limited liability partnership. In each case immediate responses and advice were required by her clients to enable the transactions to go ahead without delay, the speed of the transaction being described as a miracle in one case.
