Me in a minute
The reason why I became and continue to practise as a lawyer is for the satisfaction of being able to add value for my clients and to support them through transformational change.
I am passionate about supporting companies, businesses and investors across the entire life cycle and in addition to my particular interest in advising investors in both private and public companies, having witnessed friends join venture capital firms or try to launch their own start-ups, I have particularly enjoyed advising investors and entrepreneurs in relation to early life businesses.
I am a keen sportsman (particularly Rugby, Cricket and Basketball, but to be honest anything and everything), and have been lucky enough to advise clients in fields such as health clubs, motorsport, and sportswear, but am keen to broaden my horizons in that respect. Away from work and in addition to sport I am a keen scuba diver (especially to see big sharks!) and generally enjoy anything outdoorsy.
