About Libbie

Libbie is an expert in all aspects of property development. A Legal 500 UK Leading Individual, she has extensive experience in acting on complex development transactions for registered providers, educational establishments, national housebuilders, developers, energy companies, funders and landowners. 

She is skilled in the coordination of planning, property, construction, funding and commercial advice required in complex property transactions both for the private and public sectors and is able to deliver a cohesive service covering all relevant areas of law.  

Libbie has worked with a number of real estate clients including Trivselhus UK Limited and NCG on major development deals. She has a reputation for creating and maintaining excellent relationships with the project teams, ensuring not only her own but the wider team’s understanding of her client’s vision and how they like to work.   


Considered as one of the few, true energy legal specialists in the region and quoted in Legal 500 UK as someone who “gets results”, Libbie has niche expertise in advising on the acquisition, disposal and funding of land-based energy development projects. These often include everything from traditional schemes such as coal extraction to new and renewable energy schemes such as solar, wind and anaerobic digestion. 

Real estate, minerals and structuring aspects of energy generation, extraction, waste management, remediation and brownfield development are also areas where Libbie’s knowledge and experience excel. 

Social Housing

Libbie is very experienced in dealing with all aspects of social housing and affordable housing for developers and registered providers including the negotiation of affordable housing provisions in s106 agreements, acquisition of land and plots for registered providers and disposals of land and plots to registered providers by developers.
