I am a highly experienced company and commercial lawyer, having dealt with a wide range of areas of law in a career spanning over 40 years. I have an outstanding academic record but have a long track record of giving practical and commercial advice and solving major legal problems for clients. Over my career I have acted for FTSE 100 companies, foreign multi-nationals, NHS Trusts and SME’s and am ‘trusted adviser’ to several SME’s. I interact well with people and have an excellent track record of business development and forging long-term relationships with clients.

I deal with most corporate and commercial matters subject to English law, but not court proceedings, and I do not advise on taxation (including stamp duty and stamp duty land tax), except on the most general basis. I set out below examples of the subject areas that I cover:

POSITIONS OUTSIDE THE LAW

I was a director of INWARD, the then regional investment agency for the North West, for many years.  I have been a governor and then chairman of the governors of Mostyn House School, an independent day school charitable trust, for many years. I was until recently chairman of the trustees of a client defined benefit pension scheme, having been a trustee for over 20 years. It was wound up in 2016.

PERSONAL

My main sporting interest is now skiing and the rest of the year I keep fit for skiing. My wife and I have a house in northwest Italy and we spend as much time as possible there, having a keen interest in Italian wine and food and all other things Italian. I have a fully-equipped office there too and look after my UK clients from the UK or Italy as appropriate.
