Jay works for clients who have a range of challenges when investing in property, developing property or objecting to neighbouring developments. He enjoys working on these matters because of the wide variety of legal issues that clients face in trying to realise the maximum value of their land. Jay advised a landowner on environmental permitting enforcement issues and the potential for requiring the Environment Agency to carry out enforcement action on a neighbouring landowner. Jay represented a client at a public inquiry where he worked closely with Counsel to structure his client's argument and co-ordinate the preparation and submission of supporting evidence and representations. The inquiry was in connection with a proposed traffic scheme that would have a detrimental impact on Jay's client's business. Jay was able to grasp the technical transport and air quality issues quickly, after having dealt with similar issues as a consultant.
