I am a corporate lawyer with more than 20 years’ experience advising high net worth individuals, families and owner-managed businesses. My clients include some of the oldest and largest family businesses in the country, as well as first generation individuals and businesses generating and looking to preserve their wealth for generations to come.

I work alongside colleagues with a private wealth background in an open and collegiate manner to ensure my clients obtain rounded and seamless advice when it comes to structuring and holding their wealth. I have extensive knowledge of the interplay between trusts and alternative family investment vehicles, and how tailor these to best suit the needs of the individual client. I also work closely with clients to develop appropriate channels of communication and governance structures which help to minimise friction around challenging issues.

I advise across the spectrum of corporate and commercial needs of my clients, including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and banking and finance issues, and my clients range from multi-national organisations to new business ventures.  I have particular expertise in structuring and operating investment funds, providing regulatory and day to day advice to wealth management houses and family offices. I also regularly advises on property related investments, being a key asset class to many of my clients.

Another key element of my role is to help clients tackle the difficult issues surrounding succession and exit. I believe in helping clients to broach difficult conversations at an early stage, empowering them to put in place the building blocks to anticipate, educate and manage expectations at the earliest possible opportunity.

Along with the rest of the Cripps Life team, and supported by more than 400 lawyers across the firm from all areas of expertise, I act as a trusted adviser to my clients, building relationships that last for many years.  Key to this is the ability to advise, coordinate and deliver commercial advice in a personable and timely manner. Working with your lawyers should be a positive and enjoyable experience and one which truly adds value, however you choose to measure it. That’s what I aim to deliver.
