What can Poppy do for you?

Poppy is a Principal Associate in the Corporate Education team and advises public and for profit higher education institutions, further education organisations, training providers, schools and academies and local authorities on a broad range of corporate law, charity law, governance, regulatory and funding issues. Poppy leads large corporate and commercial complex transactions for clients including international collaborations.

Supporting your ambitions

One of Poppy's recent highlights was acting for London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in relation to taking over two substantial medical research units from the Medical Research Council in Uganda and the Gambia, including negotiating the ongoing financial support for the units. This was a vast project and involved many people over a number of jurisdictions and complex commercial issues. Poppy collaborated network partner firms in Uganda and the Gambia and her input helped to secure a great outcome for the client.

What do others say?

"Without your input we would have had a more fragile contract and one that may have left the University open to unintended risk.  Thank you therefore for your advice, professionalism and stamina on what was an extended negotiation." [ client ]
