35 years as a commercial lawyer has given me extensive experience of how businesses can achieve success in their ventures. I provide this experience to large companies, SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs, advising on commercial contracts, acquisitions and disposals, and the legal aspects of day to day commercial operations.
I also offer a niche specialism in sports law, where I advise a number of sporting celebrities and institutions. I’m extremely familiar with the world of international motor sport, having advised teams and drivers for many years. I also continue to provide comment to international and national media, and speak regularly at conferences.
In addition to working with law firms, I spent a period of time as a celebrity manager at CSS Stellar Management. This enables me to advise celebrities in the entertainment industry on legal matters affecting their profession and reputation.
