When clients come to me, they are commonly facing complex, high-stress and high-risk scenarios – I get to the heart of the issue and, as a committed problem-solver, work with them to manage their risks and find the best outcome for them.
The best decisions are made with the clearest understanding of the issues, and it is my job to make sure that I provide information, advice and answers so that every client, from a global plc to a charity or a farming firm, has the quality of support they need. My clients range from large companies and SMEs to educational institutions and high net worth individuals; each deserves the very best I can give them.

I do have other roles beyond work – I’m an Ambassador for the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) and the Honorary Solicitor for The Northamptonshire Association of Youth Clubs, as well as the Under Sheriff of Northamptonshire and Deputy Lieutenant for Northamptonshire.
