Dawn works for a range of developers who operate in a variety of sectors, including residential, student accommodation, retail, industrial, hotel and leisure.
Dawn works alongside her clients from the very start of a development project (whether this is a developer led scheme or via promotion/sale), working with clients site finders to ensure sites identified are viable from a legal perspective, through the bidding process, purchase, pre-lets, forward funding, traditional funding, site set up and working with the developers professional team to ensure each project is handled smoothly, efficiently and that the best strategy is adopted from a legal perspective.
Complex documentation such as overage, promotion agreements, complex options/cross-options, joint ventures and bespoke development arrangements are every day fayre for Dawn who has a reputation for building long term client relationships with clients who view her as their ‘trusted adviser’ and giving commercially focussed advice and driving transactions to achieve clients objectives.
