Tim Morgan

'One of the leading technical lawyers'

Overview

I’m a Partner in our Jersey office, having joined the firm in 2015.

My practice focuses on investment funds (listed and non-listed) and related corporate, finance and restructuring issues.

I advise fund promoters, investors, boards, regulators and service providers across a variety of asset classes including real estate, private equity, hedge and liquid securities.

I trained with Taylor Wessing in London as a corporate lawyer and, following a period at PwC Legal in London, spent three years in the M&A team at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein. Throughout this period, I worked on an extensive mix of public and private M&A in sectors including industrials, oil & gas and hospitality, with a particular focus on private equity sponsored deals.

I regularly chair and speak at industry conferences.
