about Brooke

Brooke understands in property, a lawyer can make or break a deal and her focus is on being the lawyer who makes it. Over 20 years’ experience and a keen interest in property herself, Brooke sees all sides of a deal and can quickly gauge what risks are worth considering as well as what a vendor may push back on.

If one of her clients has a site they are interested in buying, Brooke is able to consider the client’s business needs, assess the risks involved in the property transaction and align the two to achieve the outcomes the client needs.

As an accredited property law specialist, Brooke is able to cover all aspects of property transactions, including advising business and asset owners on property and finance transactions, due diligence, negotiations, acquisition and divestments, property development, planning, leasing, conveyancing and banking and finance.

“Buying or selling property is a strategic decision involving major costs, and potentially serious risks. I focus on these things first, then the things needed to get the deal over the line.”

Client relationships are of highest importance to Brooke. She makes sure she is always available, is involved in their matter from start to finish and has a wide network of professionals to meet each individual clients needs.

recent experience

  • development site

    Brooke’s client wanted to develop a large, odd-shaped parcel of land they owned in New South Wales but they needed a piece of neighbouring land owned by the local council to create a shape that could be developed effectively. Brooke negotiated a land swap arrangement with the council. A problem arose when it became apparent that the builder had been engaged to commence construction before the land swap was finalised. If the land swap was not registered within 48 hours, the client faced a significant damages claim from the builder. Brooke and her team immediately prepared the documentation and worked with the council to stamp the transfers, and then through good contacts in Revenue NSW and NSW Land Registry Services, had the land transfers stamped and registered together with the subsequent plan of subdivision. All this happened with a couple of hours to spare, saving the client’s business a potential loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

  • office tower

    A client purchased a commercial A grade office tower in Sydney CBD. While the client owned the building, Brooke and her team assisted with all aspects of property matters which they faced which included drafting leases for the tenancies, car parking licences and fitout/incentive arrangements, negotiating disputes with the tenants when they arose, particularly around make good and market rent increases. Brooke assisted the client to ensure the building was very well managed from a legal perspective which in turn enabled our client to maximise the sale price of the building when they eventually sold it.
