I have primary responsibility for legal issues affecting our business. My main areas of interest are new products and innovation, commercial contracts, data protection, outsourcing and terms of business. I have won international awards for corporate governance and company law. I also act as a director for in-house and client companies.

I previously worked for our Finance and Corporate teams in Jersey and Hong Kong. I advised on a broad range of transactions including M&A, joint ventures, equity and debt restructurings and lender and borrower side financings.
