I am a solicitor in the Commercial Property Team, primarily based in Salisbury.
I act for businesses, pension schemes and individual clients on a variety of property transactions including acquisitions, disposals, the granting or taking of leases and other general landlord and tenant matters. I have a particular interest in pension property work, applying the experience I gained during my two years working in the property team of a leading pension administration company.
“We found that Zach pursued matters with great enthusiasm and an apparent commercial awareness”
Areas of Expertise
I acted for a pension scheme in the purchase of premises to be redeveloped as the new offices for the pension investor’s expanding business. The redevelopment comprised of a combination of both landlord and tenant works. I prepared the necessary documentation to ensure that the works were correctly recorded; allowing both sets of works to occur simultaneously whilst ensuring that the arrangement was HMRC compliant for pension scheme purposes.
I acted for a pension scheme in the successful auction sale of a commercial unit under short notice, preparing the auction pack and rectifying a number of title issues prior to the auction deadline.
I advised a start-up company on the taking of their first commercial lease. I reported to them in detail both in writing and on the telephone on various aspects of the lease to ensure that the premises would meet their specific requirements and to allow them to advise their lender on the company’s expected costs and liabilities over the term of the lease.

“Zach, who was brought on to the scene late in the day was excellent and saved the day”
Away from the office
I am a keen sportsman, playing lacrosse for Reading in the Southern Premiership, weekly 5 a-side football and road cycling.
A horse racing fan, I can be found at various race days throughout the year including the Cheltenham Festival, the King George and the Eclipse.
Sport aside, I enjoy gardening (particularly growing different varieties of chilli pepper) and trying to improve my cooking skills.
