Meet Angela

I am a Senior Associate in the Commercial Real Estate department at Lawrence Stephens.

Building strong client relationships is a key strength of mine and enables me to align advice with client business strategies and objectives.

Having worked in the Real Estate sector for over 10 years, I have a wide range of experience and expertise in property transactions. I have acted for a number of high-profile retailers and restaurants in the acquisition of new premises and lease renewals, as well as property investment companies in the acquisition and sale of investment property portfolios.

My key strength is building strong business relationships and providing a bespoke service to each client.  I enjoy getting to know clients and understanding their objectives and am accessible, approachable and personable. I am conscientious, approachable and driven and delivers commercial, cost-effective advice.

I am happiest when attending live music events, in particular Glastonbury Festival.  I have also taken the festival’s mantra, “Love the farm, leave no trace”, to my home and garden, where I channel my creative side into upcycling items that would otherwise go to landfill.  I am also a regular competitor on the netball court and a strong team player.

Experience highlights 

  • Acting for a start-up business in connection with the purchase of bare land from which to operate a new 4×4 off-road driving and training centre
  • Acting for a PLC in connection with three separate asset sales of tenanted mixed-use properties in Birmingham and Milton Keynes for a total sale price in excess of £50m
  • Acting for retailers and restaurateurs in relation to the acquisition of prime location properties and subsequent lease renewals
  • Acting for property investment and asset management companies in connection with the grant of new leases, lease renewals, licences for alterations and licences to assign

"Angela has a reassuring style when dealing with my property transactions, she is astute and responsive which is extremely helpful from my perspective, especially when it comes to recognising and identifying any potential concerns that may arise. She genuinely delivers a professional service and deals with them in a proactive and friendly manner."
