What can I do for you?

I lead our banking and finance team. As such, I am ultimately responsible for ensuring that each of our clients receives a consistently excellent service every time they work with us. Our clients tell me that this means certainty on costs together with relevant, practical and commercial advice delivered quickly and in a user friendly way.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

We work with a large majority of our clients on a regular basis. This allows us to readily understand a client’s objectives, work closely with their internal teams and other external advisers and provide the kind of advice that actually gives advice.

I see our role as enabling our clients to complete strategically important deals. We help to ensure that the best deal is done as quickly as possible, recognising and addressing any obstacles that may arise along the way.

What do others say?

According to independent legal directory, Chambers UK, I have the "technical knowledge, flexibility and versatility" to advise a wide range of clients on their banking and finance needs. Legal 500 describes me as "commercially minded and approachable".

But what really pleases me is the feedback we receive from clients about the strength of our team, also quoted in Chambers UK as saying that our “work is excellent and Mills & Reeve really holds its own with the London firms we are used to”.

What else should you know?

Our team has been top ranked by both of the independent legal directories for each of the last seven years. I hope that this is not just because of the talent and expertise our team has, but also a reflection that we enjoy what we do and that our clients enjoy working with us.
