Geoff Dragon, a key member of the Growth and Investment Team, progresses to Senior Associate, having also started his career as a trainee at Taylor Vinters. Geoff has a passion for all things tech and works with early-stage, fast-growth technology companies, assisting with their fundraising, commercial contracts, and employee incentive needs, with a particular specialism in EMI share option schemes.
