David qualified as a solicitor in 1981 and became a partner with Furley Page in 1984. Since then he has specialised in landlord and tenant disputes, whether involving commercial or residential property, building a wide range of experience on all matters affecting clients’ ownership or occupation of land.

David has acted for the University of Kent and local schools on various aspects relating to their buildings and property and also for local businesses whether they be as landlord or tenant of their premises.

Many clients are farmers or related to the agricultural sector, in which David shares many interests, not least training his dogs for field trial competitions around the country.

David represents clients in the County Courts and at the High Court in London as well as in proceedings before the Adjudicator to the Land Registry.

In life outside the firm David is Chairman of the Trustees of the Riding for Disabled Association, Cobbes Meadow Group based at Chartham near Canterbury. He is kept very busy by his dogs which require training for various competitions during the year, and by his garden which seems to require constant attention.
