A company has a natural lifecycle from incorporation onwards and I enjoy helping to map out that journey, providing advice to shareholders or directors, bringing in new investors, advising on a merger and acquisition – essentially helping my client to grow and develop. I like to feel like part of their team and understanding their priorities means that I can genuinely help them to achieve their aims.
Working with a wide range of businesses from SMEs to multi-nationals, I have the chance to advise clients on everything from shareholders’ agreements and articles of association to mergers and acquisitions.
Outside work, I spend a lot of time scuba diving and I love being active; I ran a marathon this spring and plan to run another in the autumn for charity.

Can’t I do this myself?
Running a business is stressful enough in itself, without having to master the complexities of company law. Instructing a solicitor means that you have a whole team of experts available to you with the ability to structure a deal in the most beneficial way for you.
A corporate transaction can never be looked at in isolation, it involves both company law and many other areas such as employment and tax law, to choose only two. We have working relationships with accountants and other professionals who specialise in all the other aspects of your transaction – they can give you specialised advice in those areas.
