Me in a minute

The opportunity to watch clients progress from angel-stage funding to successful exit is both a privilege and a pleasure.

My practice is principally tech-focused, advising founders, companies and investors on all aspects of corporate law applicable to IP-rich venture backed businesses, from incorporation, early stage investment, debt and equity financing through to M&A exit. In addition, I have advised a number of US-based businesses and investors in respect of their investment in, or acquisition of, English companies, and act as external general counsel to a number of clients.

Advising early and growth stage companies provides a fantastic opportunity to build meaningful and valuable relationships with clients, becoming a trusted advisor throughout the life-cycle of the business. The opportunity to watch clients progress from angel-stage funding to successful exit, and advise them at every stage of that journey, is both a privilege and a pleasure.
