About me

In the corporate world, no two transactions are the same and every day presents a new challenge. A client’s business goal becomes my goal; I enjoy the fast-paced nature and working ‘behind the scenes’ towards a common goal – to get the deal, whether buying or selling, over the line.

Transparency and communication are key to any transaction. I will ascertain a client’s objectives at the outset so that I can meet allocated timescales as best I can and manage expectations where necessary. My clients range in size and industry, from smaller family run businesses to large financial services firms needing legal guidance on sales and acquisitions, investment agreements, share or asset restructures and more.

Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and travelling.

Get us involved as early as possible and be clear on what you want to achieve and when. We can let you know if timescales set are realistic, and it is much easier for us to meet (or exceed) your expectations and provide advice if we are involved as early as possible.

Communication is key. Keep us and your other advisers (if any) in the loop with any developments that may occur.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

What is 'due diligence' and why is it important when purchasing or selling a business?
In the context of a share acquisition, due diligence is the process by which a buyer investigates a target company before purchasing it. This usually involves reviewing legal, financial and commercial information about the business. It is important because when purchasing a company, a buyer is taking on the company's liabilities and is responsible for carrying out its own investigations, searches, enquiries and inspections. The process is usually supported by warranties and indemnities that form part of the acquisition agreement.

What are heads of terms?
Heads of terms are a legal document, usually prepared and/or signed in the early stages of negotiation, that set out the main principles that have been agreed for a transaction. Although not usually legally binding, heads of terms show the future intentions of parties and form a starting point from which an acquisition document will be drafted.
