About me

Exciting business plans often involve corporate transactions. As a member of the corporate team, it’s my job to guide my clients through their transactions and lead them towards successful outcomes.

I’m a proactive solicitor, providing useful and commercial advice in plain English, and always make time for my clients when they need me. I’ve worked for manufacturing companies, accountancy and financial advisory firms and a number of hospitality companies.

I provide my clients with a range of corporate advice including company law, business law and commercial law. Outside work, my passions include travelling – particularly city breaks – and watching Newcastle United.
