I have broad corporate and commercial experience in investment, M&A, joint ventures and strategic alliances, and particular expertise in corporate real estate, hotels and leisure.

Outside of work, I enjoy football, cricket, playing tennis and spending time with my family.


What is your best legal anedcdote?

When negotiating the sale of one client’s business on the twelfth floor of their headquarters (to be transferred as part of the sale), the buyer noticed a number of large cracks in the windows. After some fast footwork, a suitable explanation was found, appropriate assurances provided and the deal closed, much to everyone’s relief.

What is your most interesting legal experience?

I once drafted legislation to nationalise certain critical infrastructure in an Eastern European jurisdiction. The bill was put before parliament and passed into law but, to my knowledge, never used.
