What can I do for you?

I am an associate in our commercial disputes team and a member of the firm's restructuring and insolvency group. I deal with all manner of commercial problems for clients, from breach of contracts to disputes between shareholders.  

I have a particular focus in insolvency and, over the past few years, I have advised the administrators across a range of sectors, including a soft drinks company, a high street jeweller and a farming business, as well as directors of distressed companies and trustees of charitable organisations. 

Supporting my clients' aims

I advised the administrators of an English company whose parent was subject to a Canadian bankruptcy and its major secured creditor in the US.  This involved working with the administrators, the secured creditor, and the overseas office holders to resolve a variety of cross-jurisdictional issues, all to tight timescales. 

I also spent eight months seconded to a facilities management company where I worked alongside their existing in-house legal team. I have seen what matters to clients from the other side of the desk and aim to be an extension of their team.

What do others say?

Clients have said that they like my approach and were glad to find some “pragmatic and straight talking lawyers”. I was praised by a QC after a mediation who said he was “seriously impressed by Lino’s mastery of the detail of the papers and of the figures”. 

Legal 500 describes me as "attentive and commercial" and part of a "friendly team" that provides "clear and definitive advice".

What else should you know?

I sit on the Eastern Region Committee of R3, the Association of Business Recovery Professionals. I am a solicitor advocate and I co-ordinate our In-House Advisers Forum in Cambridge, which runs regular sessions for in-house lawyers.
