What can I do for you?

I am the head of the Leeds corporate team and has been part of the Yorkshire deals market for over 20 years. I specialise in buying and selling businesses for a range of clients, including international, AIM listed and privately owned businesses. I use my experience, connections and M&R’s resources to help my clients achieve their goals.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

I recently helped one of my clients complete 18 acquisitions in 2017 ranging from £200,000 to £10 million in value. I try to always understand and focus on what is important for my client. Then, with M&R’s resources and my sector expertise I was able to streamline the process and complete the acquisitions on time and on budget.

“I still get a buzz out of helping my clients get the right deal and in delivering a first class legal service, be that acting for private equity, management teams, corporate clients, individuals or family businesses.”

What do others say?

Chambers UK ranked me as one of only top two ranked corporate lawyers in the Leeds mid-corporate market. I am regularly praised by my clients. Some current quotes are:

“He is commercially aware and takes a genuine interest in our business. His knowledge and experience is invaluable to us.”

What else should you know?

I think there are some fantastic opportunities in the UK in particular to grow and develop businesses and I am looking forward to using M&R’s sector expertise in particular to help them achieve their goals.
