“With Integrity. With Passion. With Vigour”. When Gillian and James told me that this was the Mission Statement of their new firm, Rushford & McCarville, I felt they had encapsulated everything I believe should guide lawyers, in taking first class care of their clients.
It is clear that the people of Newport Pagnell, and surrounding areas, are glad to have good lawyers right here, in the heart of their community.
In March 2016, I joined Gillian and James as their Consultant. These days, I concentrate mainly on business and development work.
I took my Law Degree at Cambridge University and thereafter I went to Guildford Law School. I then trained in London with Simmons & Simmons. They wanted me to stay, but I wanted to live and work in the beautiful English countryside.
I moved back up to North Buckinghamshire in 1975 and joined a local firm in Olney. I became a Partner within a few months, and then became Senior Partner from 1987 to 2002. Thereafter, I was Managing Partner at the same firm from 2002 until my retirement from the Partnership, in 2014.
Throughout my 42 years in practice, I have represented major PLC and other Developers, notably Wilson Connolly PLC (Wilcon Homes), before they were taken over by Taylor Woodrow.
I have bought major residential and commercial building sites for my developer clients all over England throughout my career. I have dealt with all aspects of development land, acquisitions, options, promotion agreements, consortiums, joint ventures and the like, including planning, planning appeals and infrastructure work.
I come from a family of Builders and I also run my own Property & Development Company. I therefore, have a practical and commercial understanding of the issues involved, as well as my legal experience.
I can usually make a significant difference to the values achieved by Landowners who have potential development land, by my work.
