A bit about me

When it comes to corporate law, you need someone who understands your business almost as well as you do. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with companies across the globe – from privately owned family businesses to PLCs seeking multimillion-pound investments – to help them realise their ambitions.

Nothing is more satisfying than being able to help my clients build their businesses and overcome the issues that block their road to success. Businesses turn to my team and me for our experience and our practical advice. The experience of our corporate lawyers means that we’re calm under pressure, and we can give them clear recommendations, rather than just a range of options.

Corporate transactions can be very demanding and you will need a team that is both experienced and committed to achieve the best result. Our team of corporate solicitors at HCR can provide all of this.

Want to know more?

Trust your advisers – they’re the experts for a reason.

Understand the issues that might stop the transaction going through from the start, and review them throughout the deal to make sure they’re taken care of.

Don’t “mentally sell” the business – completion takes longer than you expect, so keep running the business as you would normally until the deal is done.

How can we make sure the transaction completes on time?

There are lots of things that can derail a transaction, so make sure you focus on the key issues rather than getting bogged down in the nitty-gritty, and keep talking to every party to push them along and keep the momentum going.
