'Combines command of the technical detail with commercial pragmatism'


I joined Mourant Ozannes’ Jersey office in 2005 and subsequently completed a secondment with Jersey Finance, where I coordinated areas of commercial law reform with industry and government representatives.

I advise hedge, real estate and private equity funds and fund promoters, and have helped establish several high-profile investment funds and structures.

I specialise in advising on the restructuring and financing of investment structures, equity raises, investor EGMs and investor relations. I’m also lead contact advising Jersey-domiciled managed account hedge fund platforms.

My clients include Blackstone, CVC Capital Partners, TH Real Estate, Aviva, Société Générale and Alphabet.
