Area of Expertise
- Business recovery and insolvency
I am a partner in the firm’s corporate and commercial teams, specialising in corporate transactions including corporate finance, M&A and joint ventures, MBOs and MBIs, share option schemes and banking transactions. I have particular expertise in the IT and telecoms sectors. I also have extensive experience in turnaround and insolvency.
These are complex areas of the law, so my clients need to feel confident that we have the necessary legal expertise and experience to anticipate potential problems and deal with them. They also want a high level of personal service and expect me, as a partner, to be closely involved in all aspects of the work.
80% of the work that I do is for clients for whom I have acted regularly for more than 5 years, in fact for many of them I have been their trusted adviser for more than 10 years.
It is important for the whole team to have a good understanding of the client’s business, and to be ready at all times to respond quickly with commercially aware advice and practical support. I need and have a strong team of assistants and partners to support my clients.
