I am passionate about helping great businesses obtain excellent deals. I love working alongside top business owners and managers who are passionate about their products and services and about the success of their organisation. This means being highly dynamic and responsive, great comms and mutual trust and confidence; working closely with the client to ensure that optimal terms are delivered, and deals are done promptly and in a way that protects relationships. It’s also about having a high level of legal expertise to ensure that these negotiated outcomes are reflected in concise lucid agreements which deliver certainty in value. In this way we have helped a range of high growth tech companies move to maximise shareholder value in trade sale events.

We’re a fit for you if you want a highly personal dynamic service delivering consistently great results.
