Me in a minute

I enjoy the feeling of being part of a team making something good happen in the business world

A particularly inspiring company law professor at university, whose 9am lectures on Friday mornings were always packed, made me decide to practise in corporate law. My love of organising things has also proved useful over the years when dealing with the numerous pieces of paper involved in any completion meeting. As a corporate lawyer I get to work with colleagues across different practice areas as well as working closely with clients and solicitors on the 'other side', and I enjoy the feeling of being part of a team making something good happen in the business world.

My favourite moments in my career so far have been watching clients - sometimes my clients and sometimes the other side's - who have built up their business from scratch, photographing the room full of completion documents and toasting the successful completion of the sale of their company with a glass of champagne. The hope and excitement of those moments - as the sellers consider what they will do next, and the buyer starts to plan for the integration and development of its new business - is something I will always remember.
