I am a Partner in the firm’s Banking and Finance Team. I work primarily with corporate borrowers and lenders on regional, national and international transactions, from term sheet stage through to full documentation and completion.
I have experience in a wide range of finance transactions, including acquisition finance, property finance, project finance and general corporate lending. I have advised on small bilateral deals through to complex multi-lender transactions and am very familiar with bank standard form and LMA documentation.
I trained and worked in London at Travers Smith, before joining Womble Bond Dickinson in Southampton. I joined Trethowans’ new office in Bournemouth in January 2019.
I am recommended in The Legal 500 and noted for my project finance expertise.
Thank you for getting us over the line so quickly, in fact before everyone else was ready!

Away from the office
I live in Mudeford, Christchurch in Dorset and like to be by, or preferably in, the sea whenever possible. I spend most of my spare time at the beach playing with my two small children or doing yoga on a paddleboard.
I have been a competitive gymnast, played lacrosse for England Under 21s and am a qualified coastal skipper.
