Since qualifying in 2012 I have been privileged to work with many of the country’s biggest housebuilders and have advised on all kinds of development transactions, from poultry sheds to 1,000+ unit mixed use developments. I have developed a particular specialism in strategic land deals.
My passion lies in helping developers, promoters and landowners to unlock the value and potential in their projects. We aim to share every stage of the journey with our clients, identifying development opportunities early on, right through to selling the final plot on a completed estate. Watching communities grow from the ground up is a key motivator for me; I often bore my children on days out by pointing out all the new housing estates I’ve helped to deliver!

I qualified in 2012 and have spent the last 10+ years focusing almost entirely on housebuilding and development, so I can offer my clients an exceptional level of expertise and insight.
I work in the housebuilding sector on site acquisitions, disposals and strategic projects. I also oversee site setups, infrastructure and plot sales. I have a great deal of experience in working with all types of development transactions including promotions, joint ventures and collaboration agreements, affordable housing sales and funding.
My least-known (if not greatest) professional achievement was qualifying as a tree surgeon in my early 30s, but I don’t get to spend much time on the tools these days. Mrs Shaw and I are blessed with three wonderful children and have the privilege of bringing them up in the most beautiful corner of the UK, a real bonus to working at Goughs.

Everyone is celebrated individually; strong personal relationships can be hard to maintain whilst delivering a high level of complex work, but at Goughs we recognise that our uniquely motivated and equipped team is only as strong as its members; we excel because we’re in this together.
In our unique approach to land and development, we’re recognised as entrepreneurial. No project is like another, so a one size fits all, tick box exercise won’t cut it, and that’s not what we’re here for. We get to know our clients so we understand what they really need and how to navigate the specific constraints of each project. We’ve found that every transaction is as unique as the person running it.
Our clients usually consider us more like their in-house legal team than external consultants, which is the best endorsement I could hope for.
