An opportunity for a business can be a threat to neighbours. A guest house in a quiet, leafy residential suburb applied for a premises licence to sell alcohol. Many neighbours were very worried about the use of the garden, potential noise and effect on the values of their properties.

Paul is recommended in the 2019 editions of the leading legal directories Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
