What can I do for you?
I help businesses to achieve their commercial objectives. My work focuses on corporate finance for companies and other commercial clients. I have significant experience in advising in relation to capital markets (both main market and AIM) including fundraisings, initial public offerings, mergers & acquisitions and corporate restructurings. Recent work includes a £350m bond issue, the £75m sale of UK utility company, a £40m AIM IPO for a technology company, a placing and open offer for an expanding LSE listed tech company, a pre-IPO fundraising for an award winning high growth tech business and the takeover of an AIM listed company. I am a member of the Quoted Companies Alliance Legal Technical Committee.
Supporting my clients’ objectives
It is always a pleasure to help clients implement challenging transactions. A recent highlight for me was assisting Ubisense Group plc on their AIM IPO. We advised Ubisense through a pre-IPO funding round and then a successful fundraising at the time of their IPO. Since the IPO we have advised the Company on a couple of strategic acquisitions and it is always a pleasure to see an exciting client go from strength to strength. Using our expert judgement and fresh ideas consistently for the benefit of our clients is what makes our role as legal adviser rewarding.
