A bit about me

I’ve been interested in the corporate world since school, which is why I chose to specialise in the area of corporate law. As a corporate solicitor, I get to know my clients and how their business works, key issues and their objectives, in order to deliver the best results.

I offer big firm expertise and experience, but at a more reasonable cost. I try to make the process as pain-free as possible and have many happy clients over many years, including OMB’s, multinationals, management teams, government organisations and trade associations.

Having previously managed a law firm for many years, I understand what’s involved when it comes to running a business on a number of levels. I help my clients run their businesses on the right side of the law, help them out of any scrapes and achieve a successful exit when the time is right. Specialist areas of expertise include mergers and acquisitions, private equity, joint ventures, shareholder agreements, reorganisations and company constitutional and governance issues.

In my spare time I’m interested in the natural world, history, architecture, art, sport and travel.

Want to know more?

Speak to your lawyer before setting timescales to see if these are realistic.

Keep your lawyer informed of what you have agreed so that any potential pitfalls / issues can be identified at an early stage.

Make sure that any stakeholders / 3rd parties involved are “in the loop” at an early stage and know what they are being asked to do and by when.

Is this timetable achievable?

If everything goes without a hitch then yes but be aware that X, Y or Z could affect this.

Is this a reasonable thing to agree to?

Depends on what it is!

Can you help me with this issue?

Either yes or I know someone who can.
