Although I never discuss my age, I’m pleased to have over 30 years of corporate and commercial law under my belt.

I advise on all aspects of the corporate and commercial needs of businesses, but offer particular expertise in working with investors and management teams of new and established SMEs.

I enjoy developing close working relationships with clients. Once I understand exactly what a business wants to achieve, everything stays focused on that outcome while taking account of existing and arising circumstances as they impact. At all times, the aim is to maximise success for the client’s business while minimising their risk.
