Steven joined Birketts in September 2014. He has a broad background with over 15 years' experience in commercial and residential property, most recently having worked for nearly seven years in the residential development team of a leading City law firm, specialising in residential and mixed use developments.
Steven specialises in acting for the major national house-builders. His expertise includes portfolio sales and acquisitions, corporate acquisitions and disposals, strategic land issues, including land assemblies, option and overage agreements, promotion, co-operation and collaboration agreements. His work also involves dealing with development and infrastructure agreements – most recently having successfully concluded the legal documentation to enable provision of a 25 metre bridge over a railway to provide access to a development of circa 1500 dwellings.
Steven is regularly involved in the detailed set-up of large developments for plot disposals and deals with rent charge schemes, management company set-up and structures and affordable housing sales, including umbrella and golden brick schemes. Steven takes great pride in seeing a site he has worked on fully developed and occupied.
Steven is based at our Chelmsford office.
