What can I do for you?

As a specialist in corporate law I advise privately owned companies on a variety of transactions and projects including acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and restructuring. As a team we also provide commercial advice to clients on matters ranging from commercial contracts to business structuring and shareholder arrangements.

Supporting my clients’ ambitions

I established and manage a deals origination service that was recently recognised at the Insider North West Dealmakers Awards for most innovative project. A great example of this project in action followed the successful introduction to one of our corporate clients of an off-market opportunity to acquire a large distribution business. As well as introducing the opportunity, we advised our client on the structure and legal aspects of the acquisition, and worked with their financial advisors to see a successful conclusion. We are currently working with clients on a variety of other opportunities and see this as a way of bringing a fresh approach to deal activity and working together with clients.

“Right from the start they got it, right down to the finest details. They appreciated the type of client they had and respected how demanding we can be in terms of detail, process and scheduling. Chris took a wholly sensible view regarding fee structures - appreciating the long term relationship we will now build with him and his firm”. A client

What else should you know?

When I’m not spending time with my wife and three young kids, I enjoy cooking, good wine and the occasional gig with my ageing rock band!
