Coventry, United Kingdom
I am a Partner and Head of our Corporate and Commercial Department. I studied law at Cambridge University and subsequently trained in London where I spent 9 years advising on transactional work and commercial contracts, before qualifying in 1987.
I moved to Coventry in 1994 and have continued to practise in corporate and commercial law ever since. I advise on every stage of the company life cycle from start up to sale as well as the steps along the way including financing, commercial contracts, joint ventures, investments and re-organisations. In the last 12 months, I have acted on transactional matters in the following business sectors: electrical, plumbing, goods servicing, textiles, translation services, construction, agriculture, software services, insurance, retail. I also advises on intellectual property including IP protection and exploitation.
I really listen to clients, to ensure I fully understand their needs and the best way of achieving them so that their commercial priorities can be met as speedily and effectively as possible.
I have built up an extensive range of local contacts and act for a number of local as well as national clients. I have broad experience in my chosen field built up during nearly 30 years of practice.
I live in Leamington Spa and am an enthusiastic sportsman, and often run, plays five-a-side football and badminton and am a keen golfer.
