What can Emma do for you?

Emma is a corporate lawyer specialising in investment funds and alternative investment structures. This includes advising on the formation of investment funds, subsequent acquisitions and disposals, re-financing and restructuring exercises. Emma also enjoys the challenge of advising on complex joint ventures. By using a variety of vehicles (corporates, partnerships, trusts or contract) and different jurisdictions, Emma can help to deliver the right solution.

Supporting your ambitions

Emma recently advised the largest pension scheme in the country on its £400m investment in BP’s UK fuel station portfolio. The investment allowed the pension scheme to partner with a quality investment grade business in a long term arrangement benefiting from sustainable rents and a proven trading performance from fuel and non-fuel assets.

Having spent time in-house, Emma has learnt to see things from the client's perspective. She believes that listening and clear communication are the keys to ensuring that she delivers what her clients want and need, whether that is a high level overview of issues or a detailed analysis of the law on a specific point.

What do others say?

Emma is recognised by Legal 500 as "highly experienced and technically minded". She prides herself on being trusted and respected by her colleagues and clients and is frequently complimented on her hard working ethic, her "can do" attitude and her commercially pragmatic approach. Emma enjoys helping her clients work through the issues that any transaction presents and will do so with energy, experience and a smile.

What else should you know?

Emma cares about mental health issues. Having experienced challenging periods in her life she understands the value of talking therapies and spent 5 years as a trustee of Gloucestershire Counselling Service, which provides high quality counselling and training at an affordable cost to individuals experiencing a wide range of personal issues.
