I am delighted to be working as a senior solicitor in our Corporate and Commercial team.
I’ve worked in the Tees Valley for nearly 25 years, with the first years spent in senior positions in marketing and operations management in the chemical sector. I then took a deep breath and changed career, and have enjoyed the last 19 years as a corporate and commercial lawyer, including 11 years at partner level.
That time as a non-lawyer in industry has really helped me appreciate what clients are looking for from their advisers. My aim is always to understand my client’s business, their issues and aims, so that I can give practical and focussed advice. It’s a great feeling helping clients achieve their business goals and supporting them on their journey.
I specialise in company and commercial law and can help businesses at all stages of their life: from (1) starting up to (2) day-to-day trading contracts to (3) growth plans, re-organisations, acquisitions, business sales, mergers and joint ventures to (4) ultimate sale by their owners. That’s supported by experience of a wide range of business sectors and commercial issues, including manufacturing, purchasing, intellectual property, brand protection and franchising.
Outside work, I’m a keen cyclist and walker and have been known to spend an occasional (and sometimes frustrating) moment on a golf course.
