When we formed FLP, and subsequently MLN Land and Properties Ltd, I had no hesitation in approaching her to act for us. She brings a great depth of industry knowledge, commercial acumen and an astute ability to balance our legal requirements with that of the realities of delivering satisfactory contracts that work for all parties. Her understanding of all aspects of strategic land and her complete professionalism made her an asset to our team.”

"I am totally at home with the culture of the house-building industry and what makes it tick and I believe my success lies in my ability to look at the bigger picture.

Of course as a lawyer I am there to dispense legal advice and understand the legal framework, but I do a lot more than that.

I am a facilitator who understands and collaborates with the expertise of others, such as planning and engineering consultants and land agents.

Above all else, I understand that in order to successfully deliver, teamwork is essential."
