Georgia frequently advises and acts in relation to issues arising out of construction, property development and refurbishment. Additionally, she deals with related property matters, for example, claims in trespass, nuisance, and party wall act claims.
Her common law background also enables her to advise in respect of linked areas relating to property and construction and associated litigation, such as employment, insolvency and negligence. Her time at a City Law Firm prior to obtaining Pupillage also equipped her with an understanding of commercial realities from multiple perspectives.
