Working with international clients, many of them Chinese, gives me the chance to enable their businesses to grow across a range of sectors, helping to bridge the culture gap between China and the West. Because I have extensive experience of a wide range of corporate and commercial issues, I can offer pragmatic and proactive solutions as well as guiding them away from potential pitfalls.
Understanding how my clients work and what their aims are is key to my support for them – I’m committed to building long-term relationships with them. From start-ups and SMEs to large corporations and Chines state-owned enterprises, I work with a range of organisations and sectors.
Outside work, I am fascinated to cook and eat many different cuisines, with a focus on Asian food.

Q: We just need a standard shareholders’ agreement, can you prepare one?
A: There is no standard shareholders’ agreement that would fit all companies, as each company is a unique entity. Each shareholders’ agreement, along with a set of articles of association, should be specifically drafted to your company’s and all shareholders’ needs.
