Jo is an Associate Partner in the Bespoke and Commercial Property team.

Jo qualified into the Property department in 2003 where she has been happily situated ever since.
Jo deals with a wide range of commercial property matters which include:

- break notices;
- freehold and leasehold acquisitions and disposals;
- lease extensions;
- property financing;
- deeds of variation;
- property elements of corporate transactions; and
- bespoke property transactions.
Jo's clientele is also highly varied: ranging from large property developers setting up new leasehold development schemes; to small owner-managed businesses either looking to buy or sell their premises or to assign, surrender or extend their premises leases; to individual homeowners purchasing additional land to use as a vegetable garden!
Jo prides herself on her efficient and pragmatic approach and she has a high degree of commercial awareness which is essential for any type of commercial or bespoke property transaction.
