The combination of the intellectual challenge of corporate law, the need to be imaginative in solving problems in the best interests of my clients and the fact that I enjoy facilitating transactions in which generally all parties have a common aim are the main reasons why I specialise in corporate law.
Because I have worked in both private practice and as a general counsel and legal director in a commercial environment, I can understand and advise upon a wide range of topics within the general corporate, commercial and business area. My area of particular expertise is the acquisition of companies and businesses, and while I have had a good deal of experience of the IT sector, I have also recently been acting for a large corporate client in the health and social care sector.
Communicate at an early stage with your lawyer if there are issues to be addressed and continue to work together.
Remember that sometimes the law will not allow you to do exactly what you want. Trust your lawyer to help you to come as close to that as possible.
Lawyers can, and do, take a commercial attitude towards business – they are there to add value and not to hold business back.
How do I achieve what I want to do, in the time that I want to do it?
The answer to this varies, of course, according to circumstances, but I will always be as clear and accurate as possible in my assessment of a situation, so that you have as much information as possible.
How much will it cost to do what I want to do?
I will always give you as clear an estimate as I can of the potential costs, and keep you informed – you’ll find that our fees are less than those of some competitors.
