Practice areas

Business Property & private client Public & regulatory

Sally is a property specialist. Her practice embraces real property and commercial and residential landlord and tenant including service charge and enfranchisement matters, and cases in a social housing and agricultural context.

Before coming to the Bar she taught English as a foreign language in Greece, Estonia and Cameroon across a period of almost a decade. Her Greek is now all but non-existent but her Estonian is passable and her French certainly benefited from haggling in Cameroonian markets.


Sally advises on commercial contracts and tenancies and will appear for the appellants (MWB) as Clifford Darton’s junior in MWB Exchange Centres Limited v Rock Advertising Limited which has been granted permission to appeal by the Supreme Court and is due to be heard early in 2018.

Property & private client

Sally has appeared in the county court, the first tier and upper tribunals, the High Court and the Court of Appeal and will appear for the first time in the Supreme Court in February 2018. She has a broad property practice and has advised and represented commercial and residential clients on – amongst other things – dilapidations, the construction of leases and licences, easements and covenants, express and implied trusts, boundary disputes, forfeiture, adverse possession and proprietary estoppel claims.

In a housing context, she has a particular interest in claims which include elements of public law or human rights and has developed expertise in matters arising out of the protection of the tenant’s deposit.

She has an eye for detail and an interest in procedure which is often useful in cutting through to the important issues.

Leicester City Council v Shearer [2013] EWCA Civ 1467
