Nikki’s interest in leasehold matters developed early as a student representative in the London Rent Assessment Panel (as it was in 2001). She worked substantially in the field of landlord and tenant in the County Court before commencing pupillage in a common law set, in which she developed a focus on housing and leasehold work, including enfranchisement. Her understanding of additional common law areas of work ensures that she can provide her clientele with unique, informed, holistic solutions to their litigation issues.
Nikki further developed her specialism during a period as a Senior Lecturer on the Bar Professional Training Course, for which she created and delivered a specific Landlord and Tenant module. She continues to provide accredited training to the profession on areas including service and administration charges, leasehold variations, and disrepair.
In 2016 Nikki was appointed to sit as a Chair of the Valuation Tribunal for England, broadening her experience to include questions of land valuation for the purposes of tax and rates.
Nikki joined Arden Chambers in August 2017. She is an academic practitioner with a key focus on technical and complicated work.
