Evangeline brings international experience to Stork Davies, having previously qualified as a solicitor in the UK.

Since joining the firm, Evangeline has built on her previous UK experience with work on large-scale property transactions, retail and commercial leasing, business acquisitions and divestments, loan arrangements and recovery matters.

Evangeline is passionate about the law and works closely with clients to assist them to achieve their commercial objectives.

A key focus of her work involves the documentation of retail, industrial and office tenancies, and providing advice on related issues for a wide range of both landlords and tenants.
