We pride ourselves on having a proactive, responsive and commercial approach backed by a wealth of legal knowledge. Individuals within the team boast complimentary in-house experience in roles such as counsel to a national sub-prime mortgage lender, a listed public company and a multi-national group, director and trustee of an international charity and associate in a corporate finance boutique. Through this experience we better understand the commercial issues that are important to our clients and we strive to deliver legal solutions that meet our clients’ commercial objectives.
