A bit about me

In the fast-paced corporate world, it’s important to make sure you’re working with a solicitor that’s quick to respond, always available and who can adapt to every situation. In short, I make sure that deals get done. I work with all kinds of businesses from widget manufacturers and large recycling businesses to IT infrastructure specialists.

Whenever a client’s got a question or an issue, I will never respond with a flat ‘no’ – I’ll always think of a way I can help. I’m experienced in acquisitions and disposals, corporate restructuring work, joint ventures and management buyouts, both in the UK and abroad, but my local knowledge means that I have a key insight into the vibrant Worcestershire and West Midlands market.

In my spare time, I like to get out into the fresh air as much as possible – whether that’s walking my dog or managing my son’s under-11’s football team.

Want to know more?

Make sure you get proper contracts in place, as these will protect you and ensure everything goes as agreed.

We don’t like sitting on the fence, and neither should any of your other advisers. Make sure you’re working with people that will actually give you real, actionable advice.

Be honest and responsive whenever a query or issue arises – it will help the transaction complete more smoothly.

Am I doing the right thing and where are my risks?

Each transaction is unique, so we need to look at the due diligence work to understand where risks might lie. From there, we can provide effective advice that you can build on.

Do you think I should get that in writing?

Yes! You should always get any kind of agreement in writing – verbal confirmation is not always enough.

How long will it take, and how much will it cost?

We will always help you to complete a transaction in as short a time as we can, and as cost effectively as possible. If we know all the details at the start, we can provide an accurate estimate.
