Marie heads up the banking and finance team regularly advising clients in Yorkshire and across the UK.  Marie deals with all aspects of banking finance work with extensive experience and expertise in real estate and development finance.  

“With a dedicated and ‘can-do’ attitude, I believe that delivery of service is paramount and work hard to go the extra mile for my clients. The ability to deliver within short timescales is key for many of our lender clients and forms an integral part of their business.  

We act for primary and secondary lenders, asset-based lenders and invoice discounters to name a few and my real estate and development finance expertise includes industrial, leisure and healthcare properties so we have real insights into these sectors."

Marie has been involved in around 100 transactions that Reward Capital has completed so I can speak with some authority about Marie’s ability. She is hard working, reliable, very professional and extremely conscientious. Many of our transactions need completing within very tight timescales and Marie gives us the confidence that enables us to guarantee to our clients that we wont let down in meeting these deadlines. Nothing is too much trouble for Marie. Being technically strong is a given as a property and commercial lawyer, but the ability to consistently perform, with a smile and a complete level headedness, is what sets Marie apart.
