I am an experienced corporate lawyer focused predominantly on the innovation economy and the venture capital universe.
I deal primarily with mergers & acquisition, corporate restructuring, venture capital and private equity financing. As well as acting for some of the most fantastic class-leading companies, I also act for a range of highly respected institutional private equity and venture capital investment funds.
I lead our Core Corporate team.
- Private equity and venture capital investment;
- Delivering exit transactions to the sell-side, including trade sales and secondary transfers;
- Buy-side M&A transactions, particularly in IP-rich sectors;
- Acting for corporate/ strategic investors;
- Premium angel investment (including SEIS and EIS transactions);
- Capital restructuring;
- International corporate structures; and
- General corporate advisory matters.
By combining a big-picture strategic view with close attention to details, my colleagues and I aim to provide you with “here’s how we do this” advice on how to achieve your business objectives in the smartest possible way.
I’ll support you with insights gained in my career so far, spent working with many of the most respected individuals, institutions and corporations in the evolution of the innovation economy and the venture capital universe. I have strong and valuable networks in a variety of industry sectors, including internet, biotechnology, healthcare, agritech, SaaS, e-commerce, fintech, cleantech and leisure.
Having spent time working client-side on commercial and corporate matters with PA Consulting Group and National Grid, I believe I can consistently empathise with a client’s point of view.
I have been with Taylor Vinters since 2013, having previously worked at Eversheds LLP and Taylor Wessing LLP since my admission as a solicitor in 2004.
I am a graduate of Cambridge University and hold a post graduate diploma in law from City, University of London.
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors and will take any opportunity to go hiking, biking and wild camping with my young family.
