Martyn is based at our Ripon office where he heads the firm's commercial property/corporate department. He also maintains a private client base with an interest in trusts and estate planning. He graduated in law at University College London and spent his early career with a leading Leeds firm (now Pinsent Masons) where he was articled. After joining the firm as an associate solicitor, he became a partner in 1990.

Martyn has wide experience of commercial matters, including companies, take-overs, contracts, leases and all aspects of property law. He values the rapport to be gained with clients in both commercial and private matters. He also advises some local charities.

Outside the office, Martyn's main interests are musical. He sings with Cantores, a chamber choir based in York, and is a peripatetic church organist in Thirsk and the surrounding villages. He is the chairman of the highly regarded Ripon St. Cecilia Orchestra, of which he is a keen supporter. In the past, he has been seen on stage and, despite protests, with his violin. In his spare time he may be found in the gym and, on sunny days, on his bike.
