Education plays such a key part in everyone’s life and working with schools to ensure their successful future is fascinating. I enjoy working on deals – helping a client towards a successful merger or acquisition is very satisfying. I also appreciate getting to know my clients well, so that I can offer them advice which really fits their commercial situation – I am always willing to listen and to be pragmatic.
Although most of my work is with school staff, governors and directors, that also includes charities, academies and the full range of educational institutions; I have worked in both finance and the public sector before, so I know some of the wider legal issues which they are facing.
Outside work, my young family absorbs most of my time, but I enjoy golf and cycling.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions because there is no such thing as a stupid question.
