I am a non-contentious Solicitor and provide advice in all areas of Private Client practice.
I qualified in 1983 and spent three years working for Boodle Hatfield in London W1, where I acquired a great deal of experience in dealing with Residential and Commercial Leases for a variety of properties on a landed estate. After a few years spent as a locum I took over Knowles & Co in Mitcham, Surrey and spent 22 years as a Sole Practitioner. I still act for many of the clients who I inherited when I took over the firm in 1989.
In 1990, with the introduction of the Care in the Community Legislation, I became interested in looking at the whole issue of residential and nursing care. I advise clients who are about to move into residential or nursing care and look at the assessments and the type of care they require.
