A bit about me

If you’re planning on buying or selling a company, looking to invest or seeking investment, or have any other issue related to running a business, let’s have a chat. I’m passionate about seeing businesses grow and develop, and I’ll provide you with commercial, proactive advice.

I like to get involved with transactions as early as possible – that way, I can help you make important strategic decisions for your business or regarding an opportunity that you may not have considered. I have an excellent network that I use to find business opportunities and targets for my clients, and keep them up to date with any developments in their sector or more generally within the law.

My specialist area is private equity and venture capital, acting for management teams and institutional investors. I have many years’ experience of management buy-outs, secondary buy-outs, equity investment deals and development capital transactions.

Want to know more?

Get us involved early in any deal and don’t just focus on the costs – it’ll save you a lot of stress later on.

There is no such thing as being over-prepared in any transaction, so be organised and keep accurate records.

Even though we’re excellent at turning things around quickly, things always take longer than expected, so be realistic with time frames.

How much will it cost?

We will be able to provide a fee range once we understand the transaction.

How long will it take?

Once we understand the complexity of the transaction, we can provide a time scale.
