Meet Kimberley

Having joined Lawrence Stephens in September 2021, I am an experienced Real Estate Finance Senior Associate with 6 years’ PQE.

I regularly act for a range of lending institutions including well-known banks and boutique lenders.  Bridging loans are a key specialism of mine; I habitually advise on a variety of bridging finance transactions from small residential refinances and mixed-use property refinances to large-scale ground-up developments, more recently heading up a team of 5 solicitors acting for a fixed term lender providing finance against commercial and mixed use properties.  

Always aiming to provide a professional, efficient and personal service, I make an effort to build strong relationships with clients and colleagues.  Clients consistently rely on me to ensure that their needs are met and queries are answered throughout every stage of a transaction.

I have a keen interest in personal nutrition and fitness, attending the gym 5-6 times per week.  An avid traveller, I was born in the Cook Islands and try to go back as often as possible to catch up with friends and get back to basics.

Experience highlights 

  • Acted on £4.2m loan refinance of a multi-use property
  • £1m refinance of a commercial property with 4 leases, completed within 1 week of instruction
  • Acted on a £1.5m loan for the acquisition of the shares and business of a health care company and acquisition and refinance of health care facilities

“Her highly proactive, commercial approach was exceptionally refreshing. The deal itself was highly complex with multiple challenges and both myself & the borrowers legal team really benefitted from having Kimberley within the deal team."
