I am an experienced corporate lawyer with particular expertise in M&A and equity capital market transactions and also in advising publicly traded companies on their disclosure and other regulatory obligations. 

As a business adviser, I am also able to draw on the experience gained over 5 years as CEO of an international professional services firm with annual revenues of c.£170m and over 1,100 employees.


My experience spans:

  • cross-border as well as UK transactions;
  • both public (City Code) takeovers and private company M&A;
  • advising entrepreneurs/owner-managed businesses as well as listed companies; 
  • both buy-side (acquisitions) and sell-side (divestitures);
  • equity capital markets transactions, including IPOs and secondary issues.
