• I am an associate in the Corporate team, sitting within the Commercial and Infrastructure department at Bevan Brittan in Birmingham.

    I advise clients on a broad range of corporate transactions, including share and asset disposals and purchases, equity investments, joint ventures, corporate reorganisations and general company law matters. I have particularly strong experience in equity investments, having advised both investors and investee companies on over 100 investments of between £50,000 and £8 million. I also advise on all aspects of corporate governance, including matters relating to Articles of Association, Shareholders’ Agreements and directors' duties issues.

    The clients I act for come from a wide range of backgrounds, and include owner-managed businesses, SMEs, investment funds, entrepreneurs and multi-national companies. I pride myself on avoiding the ‘one size fits all’ approach, by having a keen sense of commercial awareness and tailoring my advice to meet each client’s particular needs.
