I qualified as a solicitor in 1994 after having completed my articles in London. I continued working in London until joining Wortley Byers in 1997. 

I became a partner in the Wortley Byers corporate commercial department in 1999 and headed up that team between 2009 and 2012, I was appointed Managing Partner of Wortley Byers in January 2014.

I specialise in mergers and acquisitions in a wide variety of industries, joint ventures and collaborations and the corporate aspects of running a business. My expertise in commercial matters has ranged from advising on large outsourcing  projects in  many sectors, from print management to waste collection services and contracts for a wide variety of services.
