"FD provided more than we anticipated and with a level of professionalism that surpassed our previous advisors. It was a genuine pleasure to do business with them and there was an honest feeling of involvement with the whole process."
"Exceedingly professional and approachable at every level. I highly recommend his services."
"Steven has worked with us to close two leases on commercial property. His pricing is extremely competitive and his attention to detail is excellent. He works hard to make sure that the contract contains all of the information and benefits to you as the client. We will hire Steven again and plan on working together for a long time."
"I have worked with Paul over the course of approximately 10 years and can thoroughly recommend his knowledge of business law and expertise with regard to commercial property matters. I have no hesitation in referring my own clients to him."
I was born and raised in the Black Country but I do not seem to have kept the strong accent, which could have something to do with the fact I have gravitated towards Coventry over the last 7 years.
I completed A-levels in Law, History and English Language and Literature during college. Having enjoyed and done particularly well in Law, I went onto do a Law degree at Coventry University. At University I completed a number of modules and carried out voluntary work experience in different areas of Law during my free time. I did this to not only gain practical experience but help me decide what area of Law I wanted to specialise in.
After working for a year in a personal injury firm, I decided to become a solicitor and went onto complete the LPC full-time at the University of Law where I passed with a Distinction. I picked commercial electives and decided to then focus on gaining commercial property experience.
This started with drafting and negotiating wayleaves on a daily basis before being lucky enough to secure a training contract at Feldon Dunsmore Solicitors in July 2018 where I now deal with all aspects of commercial property law. These matters have ranged from contracts for large developments sites to leases acting for either landlord or tenant.
Outside of work I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures. I have a bucket list of places I would like to visit. My most memorable trip to date has to be my road trip to Canada and down the west coast of America.
I am a big foodie and enjoy trying different restaurants (it is possible that there isn’t a restaurant in Birmingham where I have not eaten out). When I am at home you can find me reading (my bookshelf is pretty impressive if I do say so myself) and baking when I have a free Sunday afternoon.
One word my colleagues would use to describe me is…

My alter-ego Disney character is…
If I won the lottery I would…
My superhero power would be…
