What can I do for you?

Chris advises a variety of businesses on corporate transactions, including acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and restructuring. Whether advising large corporates or working with owner managers on transactions, Chris has been a part of the North West deals market for over 15 years.

Supporting my clients’ ambitions

Recent deals in 2016/17 include the acquisition of a majority stake in online retailer Blinds 2 Go for multinational Hunter Douglas NV and an intensive buy and build strategy for the Global Entertainment and Media Group, completing the acquisition over 18 months of 14 separate major music festivals, making Global the second largest festival operator in the UK. Deal making for Chris is all about communicating with clients and other advisors then collaborating with the specialist lawyer across our offices to get the best outcome for the client.

What do others say about me?

Chris has been recommended as ‘exceptional’ in The Legal 500 (2016) and hailed in Legal Week (2017) as a ‘rising star’ in mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

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!
