About me:

I have specialised in corporate and commercial work for more than 25 years, including more than 20 years as a partner. Having been a partner at two city centre law firms prior to joining Chafes Hague Lambert, I have extensive experience of advising clients on many corporate transactions and drafting and negotiating a wide variety of commercial agreements.

My clients range from SMEs and private family companies to public companies and cover a broad range of sectors including clothing, food, fulfilment and distribution, freight and logistics, manufacturing and numerous service industries.

Understanding a client’s business is key to providing pragmatic and commercially relevant advice and my hands-on approach has resulted in many long-standing client relationships.

Key cases:

• Acting on multi-million pound sale of a marketing collateral fulfilment company to a FTSE 100 PLC
• Acting for an online technology company on three rounds of private equity investment
• Advising a well known lifestyle clothing company on its worldwide distribution and licensing agreements
• Acting for a family owned agricultural business on group reorganisation and long term energy services agreements

Professional memberships: Law Society

My top tip: When considering a corporate transaction, always take advice at an early stage of the negotiations
