I specialise in the formation and deployment of private investment funds, corporate M&A and joint venture transactions, listed debt programmes, debt securitisation and Eurobond listings.

My experience in private funds includes advising the full spectrum of fund stakeholders (including sponsors, managers and investors) pursuing all major private equity strategies including buyout, venture capital, real estate and debt.

I also advise on a broad range of corporate matters (private mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, restructuring and corporate advisory matters) and debt finance transactions on which my experience includes acting for issuers, investors and servicers on the structuring, servicing and listing of single or multi-tranche listed debt programmes, debt securitisations, Eurobond listings and sports receivables financing (with particular expertise in the financing of football transfer fees).

From my experience of representing clients on funds, finance and corporate matters I have developed a unique collection of technical skills and market knowledge across a variety of transaction types. As a result of my experience I am able to help my clients achieve their objectives often by finding pragmatic solutions to any issues which arise in the course of a transaction. I am fiercely dedicated to my work, enjoy challenging deadlines and find the drafting of legal documents to be immensely satisfying.

Away from work I enjoy sports, cooking and travel. I am also a trustee of the Tottenham Tribute Trust, a registered charity created by a joint initiative with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club to provide assistance to anyone connected with the Club who has fallen on difficult times.
