My Expertise

I have worked as a corporate lawyer for 20 years dealing in all aspects of corporate finance work including flotations and fundraisings, mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions with a particular focus on the financial services, logistics, retail and technology sectors.

Read more about me

I lead the National Corporate Team across nine offices in the UK and Ireland supported by specialists in banking, commercial, pensions and tax. We represent companies from a variety of sectors, as well as private equity funders, banks and other financial services companies, management teams and public bodies.

This breadth of expertise means that we understand all aspects of a transaction, and all parties’ priorities, ensuring that deals move smoothly. Our approach is energetic, decisive and clear. We work to understand our clients’ needs and have a distinctively approachable style.

I have been described by Chambers and Partners as having a reputation for suggesting ‘practical and pragmatic solutions' and as ‘very commercial and hands-on’ with the ability to ‘concentrate the mind of the other parties’.

Legal 500 has called me ‘a corporate big hitter’. I was also described as 'one of the few quality public company lawyers operating in the North West' and I am a member of the London Stock Exchange Regional Advisory Group.

I hold the Corporate Finance qualification from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales
