Bio: I have been a lawyer for more than 30 years working for firms ranging from seven partners to 300 plus partners with offices throughout Europe. I am an old fashioned business lawyer dedicated to supporting clients and ensuring they are comfortable in all types of commercial agreements.

On a more specialist front I have had a heavy involvement in corporate transactions where there is a prominent intellectual property aspect. For example; Lead ip lawyer on the purchase of a famous uk car manufacturer: leading a transaction to acquire two portfolios of designs and brands of two world famous potteries, the sale for £50m of the brand, tv shows and best selling publication

Outside the office my principal interests are avant garde sound and performance art and my two grandchildren. I have a keen interest in Art and enjoy contemporary music.
