Read more about me

Ranked as a leading corporate lawyer in both Chambers and Legal 500 I provide corporate and commercial advice to businesses ranging from SMEs to large corporates.  I have been involved in some of the highest profile deals in recent years across the region including:

  • The acquisition of Crown Paints by Endless LLP.
  • Acting for the management of Pets at Home in respect of the sale of that business to KKR.
  • Acting for MSIF in relation to the sale of Vitaflo to Nestle.

In 2012, I was appointed as interim General Counsel of one of the largest pension funds in the UK, giving me first hand experience of the role of the GC and a deeper understanding of client needs.

In 2013 Chambers and Partners described me as "a superb lawyer with immense patience, integrity and technical strength" and "an expert in private equity transactions".  In 2014 they described me as "a trusted adviser, who is solution-focused and very flexible and commercial in his approach”.
