David specialises in property portfolio management work for a wide range of institutions and investors. Clients include diocesan boards of finance, the Yorkshire province of another religious denomination, as well as a number of other religious, educational and other charitable and not-for-profit organisations. He understands the additional technical legal and compliance requirements of ecclesiastical and charity law and endeavours to find ways in which clients can fulfil their commercial goals whilst also being pragmatic and sensitive. His broad practice allows him to offer commercial advice tempered by a sensitivity to, and awareness of, the objectives and responsibilities of his ecclesiastical and charity clients.
David is a deputy registrar in the Dioceses of Leeds and York and is the deputy registrar of the Discipline Tribunals for the Province of York.
David enjoys walking, cycling, railways, and following politics and current affairs. He has walked the Dales Way and climbed the Yorkshire Three Peaks for charity twice. A memorable birthday was celebrated with an afternoon with lunch on the Orient Express hauled by a steam engine.
