Michelle is a partner in the Real Estate Finance and Banking team.

She has advised on commercial property transactions since 2003, with a particular focus on secured lending and development finance.

Michelle has considerable experience acting for both institutional and non-institutional lenders  in taking security over property, perfecting guarantees, negotiating and drafting facility documentation and advising both lenders and investors on security issues.

She works closely with the insolvency team, which has resulted in her dealing with numerous  residential and commercial disposals for lenders under powers of sale or receivership and administration. This work has also involved managing commercial property portfolios for lenders and receivers and advising on recovery strategies.

Michelle manages a team specialising in advising  bridging lenders on time-pressured, often messy transactions, where her no-nonsense attitude and superb organisational skills mean that she and the team get the job done quickly and with minimum fuss.
