About me

I have always enjoyed the technical challenge of financing work. The number of ways in which clients can raise or advance debt keeps our work varied and interesting. I act for companies and lenders of all sizes, from SMEs to blue chip corporates and private credit funds to bulge bracket commercial banks. I specialise in helping clients with leveraged finance, acquisition finance, structured finance and restructurings.

I work hard to reassure my clients that I’m in their corner and focused on achieving the best possible outcome for them on any given transaction. I love the satisfaction of taking the client’s deal through to completion and delivering on their commercial aims.

I have spent four years starting and running my own business which gives me a better understanding of my clients’ perspective.  I can appreciate their commercial imperatives and what they’re looking for from their lawyers.

Away from work, I try to spend as much time as possible with my family as well as occasionally getting out on the water sailing and trying to manage my decline on the tennis court!

Top Tips & FAQs

Discover my top tips

Get your lawyers involved early – it can save a lot of time later on.

Ask lawyers to explain things in basic terms – if they can’t, it’s probably because they don’t understand it themselves!

Take time to explain the commercial context – the more your lawyers understand of your business and the deal, the better they can help achieve your aims.

My frequently asked questions

How long do you think this will take?

We will work hard with you and the other side to get to completion as soon as we can and getting us involved early in the process will help.

There are a lot of CPs – do we really need all of this?

Lenders have strict requirements around deliverables before they can fund a transaction. Your lawyers should do a lot of the heavy lifting but be prepared to work closely with them on these to get the deal over the line and avoid last minute hold-ups.

What are my ongoing obligations during the life of the deal?

You are likely to have regular financial testing and reporting obligations as well as ongoing requirements to provide certain information. There can also be certain post-completion matters to attend to. We can help you to understand and schedule your obligations to keep you in compliance with your documents.
