As part of our Commercial Property Team, Australian qualified Caitlin leads on a number of acquisition and disposal cases. Working across sectors, her clients range from large businesses in need of extensive property portfolio management to smaller corporations looking to negotiate lease terms or a single purchase. She also has a deep understanding of development law and advises planners on large-scale acquisitions, contracts, funding and, eventually, the sales process.

Caitlin works closely with clients to understand their commercial objectives, allowing her to build strong relationships from the start. She qualified as a solicitor in Australia in 2014 and relocated to the UK in 2017. Her broad understanding of the property industry is cross-border, and she is practiced at the complexities surrounding UK commercial property law.


Caitlin’s relevant experience includes:

  • acting for a client with a significant property portfolio on the purchase of three commercial office buildings (in Manchester, Poole and Norwich), each of which was subject to multiple occupational leases and acquired for more than £2m each
  • instructing two major Australian high street retailers on all aspects of their national leasehold portfolio, including acquisitions, disposals and variations
  • advising an international food retailer on the acquisition of its Australian leasehold portfolio, which included negotiating precedent document suites with institutional landlords
  • acting on behalf of numerous small businesses, including restaurants, bars and first-time retailers, in negotiating the commercial and legal aspects of their tenancies, including advising on lease renewals, rent reviews, lease assignments and property fitouts
