After graduating from Manchester University with a BA Hons in Economics, I trained at Saunders Sobell and qualified in 1988. Before joining Gordon Dadds in 2014, I was a partner at Frank Charlesly & Co and head of the corporate department at Davenport Lyons. I have extensive experience in advising on M&A, joint ventures, structured real estate, corporate finance, partnership law and business affairs.
Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, visiting the theatre and cinema, and spending time with my family.
