I have previously led the global banking and restructuring, financial regulation, and employment and pensions practices at a leading international law firm, significantly growing and developing them, improving both client relationships and financial performance.
In my capacity as a transactional banking lawyer, I have acted for both financial institutions and corporates with particular expertise in private equity and leveraged finance. I have considerable experience of cross-border transactions and have developed close relationships in many different jurisdictions.
Across the UK and Ireland, our Commercial Services business now employs over 800 people and accounts for approximately half of our turnover. To significantly strengthen our commercial business and drive forward future growth, I work closely with the Chief Operating Officer for Commercial Services, as well as the heads of our Corporate and Banking, Litigation and Real Estate practice groups.
I also actively support DWF's CSR and diversity initiatives, particularly the firm’s women’s network, which is designed to support the development of female talent, and Out Front – DWF’s LGBT network.
