My speciality is banking and finance law and this can involve acting for a range of businesses seeking to borrow from high street banks or for lenders (of various sizes and guises) wishing to secure the return of their funds. Since becoming part of the Vialex team, I have broadened my experience of M&A transactional work as well as that of a commercial contracts nature and so I work with both the transaction team and the Legal Counsel Service. This variety of work provides me with a balance that gives me a greater understanding of the commercial drivers for borrowers, than may be the case if I was working solely from a lender perspective. Also, having a depth of experience behind me advising mainstream lenders means I can bring a ‘lender perspective’ to acquisition work in order that we can pre-empt issues before they arise from lenders in a funding structure.
My focus is to provide tailored, jargon free, commercial advice to my clients and to understand their position. I enjoy this client contact and to be able to see the positive impact that my advice can have on the client’s business.
