I head up the corporate team. I am a client-facing approachable corporate lawyer, who takes a collaborative approach to transactions. I am involved in the running, marketing and developing of the department and corporate clients. The work consists mainly of private equity work for management teams, management buy-outs, sales, mergers, acquisitions as well as disposals for SME shareholders and a broad range of day to day corporate work including restructuring of mid-sized companies and related tax issues. Recent experience includes dealing with multi-million pound businesses in the fields of hotel and leisure, aerospace and manufacturing.

Client base includes regional, national, European and Anglo-American Companies. My aim is to ensure my clients have the best possible team working for them at every stage of a transaction and I work closely with our professional partners to give effect to this. I also deal with drafting of disclosure letters, tax deeds, loan notes and other ancillary documents.

On a personal front most of my time is taken up with my young family. I have a passion for food and drink and am a talented cook. I also enjoy travel.
