I specialise in all aspects of lending, acting for both banks and corporate borrowers. I also have experience of transforming the delivery of legal services.
I specialise in asset-based lending, corporate lending, real estate finance – development and investment, restructurings and secured lending. I have in-depth expertise across the financial services, real estate and retail sectors. I act for a mixture of borrowers and lenders including FTSE-listed companies, various financial institutions and all the UK clearing banks.
In 2009 I was on secondment to Barclays as Head of Legal for the corporate bank for nine months. This gave me insight into working in house at a global corporation and an ongoing focus in working with in house counsel.
I have strong client relationship skills. This is reflected in my being client partner for one of the firm's key banking clients and the client development partner for corporate services.
I enjoy public speaking and regularly do training and seminars for clients.
I have experience of transforming the delivery of legal services including process mapping, document automation, greater use of paralegals and project management tools. All of which we are embracing to make the banking team more efficient, consistent and cost effective for our clients.
