Kerry is a Partner in the Mines & Minerals team.
With a thorough knowledge of mines and minerals, Kerry works with major operators in the mining sector as well as a broad range of commercial property investors and developers. She advises on high value real estate transactions from acquisition and disposals to easements, wayleaves and options.
Kerry is closely involved in day-to-day advice and assistance to the UK's leading quarry products and aggregate suppliers, notably with respect to the strategic implications of regulatory changes on real estate planning.
Recent examples of how Kerry has supported clients include:
- advising a large corporate landowner on the effects of changes to proposed Telecoms Code changes, enabling them to plan the best future use of their sites;
- successfully ensuring a utility company could secure the necessary rights for its electricity cables by advising on a lease that kept sacrosanct the layout and design of the landowner's property; and
- enabling the sale of a high-value brownfield former manufacturing site for the corporate landowner by liaising between developer, planning authority and the community to overcome challenges presented by listed structures and their demolition.
