Deborah is a Solicitor and Associate in our Commercial Property team, with a specialism in asset management, and joined Talbots in 2020.
Deborah obtained a 2:1 BSc degree in Law with Legal Practice Management from Aston University, before going on to train as a Commercial Property Solicitor at a Wolverhampton firm. After qualifying in 2004 she then went on to specialise in asset management for 7 years at a large commercial firm in Birmingham, predominantly acting for pensions funds, investors and blue-chip corporate occupiers, before moving in-house working as a general property solicitor at Birmingham City Council. This experience means that Deborah can also see the client’s perspective in the field of Commercial Property which has served her well. She returned to private practice working for a Bromsgrove firm before joining Talbots.
Deborah’s experience includes general commercial leasing including lease grants, lease renewals, assignments, variations, options, licences to assign and change of use, licences for alterations, licences to underlet, surrenders and documenting and advising on rent reviews. Her expertise extends to general property management and asset management advice as well as acquisitions and disposals of commercial property acting for landlords, tenants, sellers and buyers in the industrial, offices and retail sectors.
Any spare time that Deborah finds is occupied by running around, not on the track but after her two young children and travelling to new places whenever she can!
