I joined Gordon Dadds in 2014 from Davenport Lyons, where I joined as a newly qualified solicitor in 1988. My expertise covers all areas of commercial law including M&A, international work and white collar crime fraud. I am a director and immediate Past President (2011/13) of Globalaw. Outside of Gordon Dadds, I am passionate about skiing and sailing and am a member of RORC (Royal Ocean Racing Club). I also speak fluent French and rather less fluent Danish.
What is your most interesting legal experience?
Acting for Count Alfons Mensdorff-Pouilly in respect of the SFO BAE fraud enquiry and for Aspen Pharma on its recent €1bn acquisition from GSK, co-ordinating due diligence in 18 countries.
What is your best legal anecdote?
All a client needs to do is provide clear instructions and pay the fees, and a good lawyer will do the rest.
