[Karli is] and 'efficient' senior associate
Next generation lawyer
I have over 13 years’ experience in advising on all aspects of commercial property transactions.
My work is diverse and includes acquisitions and disposals for a range of clients including charities and investors as well as dealing with all aspects of landlord and tenant and property management work.
I also deal with secured lending transactions advising both borrowers and lenders, real estate aspects of insolvency and I advise landowners and developers site assembly and transactions subject to planning.
I was delighted to work with Terrence Higgins Trust in relation to the sale of their headquarters in central London. In a difficult market the negotiations were complex and fast moving. We successfully completed the sale which has enabled the charity to progress its wider strategy.
I recently advised a charity in relation to the disposal of a large site subject to planning being obtained by a housebuilder. The titles were subject to restrictive covenants and I advised the client at the pre heads of terms stage reporting on the title and providing options for dealing with the covenants to minimise disruption to the sale and maximise the value. The negotiation of the documents involved complex trigger points in relation to the planning applications and completion and also involved overage arrangements. The site was sold in individual plots with each plot being subject to different terms. The disposal has enabled my client to generate income to further its objectives and I dealt with the issues rapidly to enable a smooth transaction and one which the client is delighted with.
Together with my corporate colleagues I advised on the acquisition of 12 high street and outlet stores. The negotiations were complex due to a deferred payment structure and challenging terms presented by the seller. The entire transaction was negotiated and completed within two weeks and this timescale was met due to the close collaboration between myself and my corporate colleagues.
