David has over 17 years of real estate development, landlord and tenant, and investment experience gained at leading real estate firms. Until 2012, he was a real estate partner with Speechly Bircham and head of sustainability.

David advises developers, investors and tenants in the financial, retail and leisure sectors and has been described as having “a pragmatic, problem-solving approach and an engaging style”. He enjoys dealing with complex buildings such as large central London, mixed-use buildings and data centres as well as portfolio deals. In addition, he has extensive experience of dealing with MW scale Photovoltaic farms.

David is married with two teenage children. To them he is Mr Taxi, ferrying them between sailing events around the country. With the addition of a demanding dog a few years ago he has to find solace in sparring sessions with a group of other old men and the occasional sail on Rutland water.
