A bit about me

As head of  our team of commercial lawyers, I’m often asked what the most satisfying part of my job is, and my answer is always the same: making a real, tangible difference for the businesses I work with.

I love getting to know my clients’ businesses and the legal challenges they face. Each company is totally unique, so whether I’m working with a corner shop or a multinational PLC, I invest time at the start of the relationship to understand their commercial arrangements and consider how, as a commercial solicitor, I can help get the most out of them.

I have a particular specialism in commercial contracts and partnership work, and have acted for professional partnerships and doctors’ practices for over 20 years. I harness my experience to come up with proactive, practical solutions, and I go the extra mile to ensure you can get on with building a successful business without worrying about legal issues.

Take legal advice early to maximise its value and return.

Focus on the commercial issues at hand, and your solicitors will take care of all the legal requirements.
