About 

Jo provides legal services to business and individuals buying, selling, letting or developing commercial land in Gloucestershire and nationwide in the UK.

A graduate of Reading University and the College of Law, Jo qualified in 2006.  Since qualifying, Jo has worked for many years for Shoosmiths and Dutton Gregory LLP where she practiced commercial conveyancing including commercial leasing, purchase and sale of commercial properties and development of land before becoming freelance in March 2020.

Jo has significant experience working with all different types of business ranging from individuals, start-ups, independent retailors and technology companies to large retail corporates and property developers. 

Jo enjoys working as closely as possible with you, getting to know what you do and why you do it.  This means she can quickly share straightforward legal advice tailored to your business when you need it.    

Jo is focused on helping small to medium sized businesses negotiate the legal aspects of commercial conveyancing in a practical, balanced way explaining each transaction in plain English.  

Jo has recently joined My Business Counsel (MBC), an innovative full-service virtual business law firm and a consultancy practice. MBC specialises in delivering personal, efficient and practical legal solutions to your business.  ​

And when we speak, we do so clearly, making sure our clients know exactly what is going on. We specialise in delivering personal, efficient and practical legal solutions. Some clients want for us to work with them in-house. Others seek a transactional arrangement, choosing us as their go-to experts. Either way, our ever-increasing network of clients confidently rely on us to meet their legal needs. As for our lawyers, we only hire experts with a solid foundation of knowledge and experience. Our dispersed working model empowers them to control their own careers.
