How Can Jess Help You?

Jess regularly acts for both buyers and sellers and landlords and tenants. Whatever your position, she can advise on your land arrangements. Jess has experience of dealing with complex land arrangements including options and overage agreements with particular expertise in 'linear projects' such as roads and pipelines. She has also spent time on secondment to the Education Funding Agency and during that time she negotiated some complex deals for opening new Free Schools and successfully delivered a number of schools in extremely tight timescales.

Meeting Your Needs

Jess has over nine years experience in commercial property (including her training, which was mainly spent in the real estate department) but before then she ran her own small family business. Jess combines these experiences to deliver a great service and a real understanding of the motivations and pressures of running a small business.

What Others Say:

'Thanks a million for all your help and support. I am glad I got the best person for the job!' - Pranj Chakraborty, Director, PCC Bars Limited.

'I would have little hesitation in saying it was perhaps the most intricate property transaction I have witnessed. I believe Jessica should be justly proud of having successfully brought all the elements together under continued pressure to the very end... The fact that she was able to resolve all the issues without any apparent or undue fuss is a great credit and I would have no hesitation in recommending her should we ever face similar challenges.'  - Anthony Brown, Principal Legal Executive, South Bucks District Council.

'Jess has provided clear and concise information and was happy to discuss any questions that arose with this instruction.' - Keith Godsmark, Private Client


Jess is an active member of the business community in Bristol and has a wide network of contacts within the banking and surveyoring sector. Having grown up surrounded by and even running a family business herself, Jess has a strong awareness of the particular motivations within the family-owned business sector and a particular interest in advising family business clients and dealing with their property portfolios.
