About

I am a Partner and the Head of Taylor Walton’s Corporate Team. I deal with mergers and acquisitions, re-organisations and restructurings, joint ventures, investment work, loan and shareholder agreements, EMI and other share scheme documentation as well as other corporate matters.

I provide a high level of customer service at a reasonable cost with a minimum of fuss. We are there to solve our clients’ problems, not to create new ones or make a fuss about something we can sort out.

My main sector specialism is in the area of accountancy mergers and acquisitions but I have a wide variety of clients including those in the property, care home, manufacturing, security and technology sectors.
