Neil is Devonshires’ Head of Real Estate. Neil acts on the full range of issues that arise on property acquisition, development, disposal, and beyond. He works with clients on overall property and development strategy as well as leading on specific transactions: from initial heads of terms discussions, through project delivery to commercial property portfolio management. That takes in issues including JV structuring, planning, rights to light and other complex title problems, long term environmental and ecological liabilities, development agreements, overage, commercial lease disposals and grant funding. Negotiating and drafting provisions around financial viability are a particular specialism in relation to which Neil draws on his economics and maths backgrounds.
In February 2021, Neil led Devonshires' sponsorship and partnership with the All Party Parliamentary Group for Regeneration and Development to help in shaping and delivering their programme. The group aims to spread the benefits of regeneration more widely. Neil continues as a member of the Residential Committee of the British Property Federation.
