Michael is Square One Law’s Teesside Office Partner and an established property lawyer with a diverse portfolio of clients and experience across a number of sectors, including energy, residential development, logistics, education, secured lending and insolvency.

He provides senior property-related support on a range of corporate deals (share, asset and investment) and is well-versed in negotiating the property aspects of corporate documentation and working collaboratively on project teams to ensure that clients benefit from the smooth and successful running of large-scale and complex cross-discipline transactions.

In uncertain times, the Teesside marketplace presents numerous challenges and opportunities a like for the business community, but significant investment in infrastructure and key projects across each of the five geographic areas, huge digital and technological advances and the engrained “can-do” attitude of forward-thinking organisations in the region continue to put Teesside on the map as a hotbed for thriving businesses. This is no better demonstrated than through the activities of our Teesside client base, including Able UK, TVCA, px Group, Teesside University, CPI, Billions and GBB.

Michael was previously with Watson Burton LLP for 13 years. He joined Square One Law in November 2014.
