Sally is a Manx Advocate. Since 2005 her practice has focused extensively on UK commercial real estate (CRE) financing through Isle of Man (IoM) vehicles (primarily companies, limited partnerships, property unit trusts and closed-ended funds) and CRE-related work (including the establishment of IoM structures and CRE acquisitions, through to the ultimate disposal of the relevant corporate vehicles or underlying assets).

Her established investor client base comprises a number of special opportunity funds and high-net-worth individuals investing in London and the South East (including (serviced) offices and hotels), as well as regional assets across a range of asset classes (PRS, student accommodation, logistics, offices and retail/leisure).

She also regularly acts for a variety of lenders providing both investment and development financing to IoM CRE structures. Clients include well-known global and national institutional lenders, as well as providers of mezzanine and bridging finance.

Sally works collaboratively with her clients’ lead UK tax and legal advisors (predominantly silver circle and magic circle firms), together with other top-tier IoM law firms and local fiduciary services providers. She routinely acts with her IoM team’s banking and finance colleagues.
