About Me

I am a Legal Director in our international Finance & Financial Regulation Group, based in London. I specialise in growth debt, advising leading lenders in the market and high growth companies on lending transactions.

Clients include specialist venture and high growth lenders, as well as more traditional banks with specialist growth divisions. Transactions range from venture debt to large LMA based loan facilities and acquisition facilities for high growth companies. These are often on a multi-jurisdictional basis and I work closely with colleagues from our international network. The companies I work with are engaged in a wide range of technology sectors.

I am also highly experienced in leveraged and acquisition finance, project finance and general corporate LMA lending. I have previously worked at a US law firm specialising in leveraged finance and two investment banks.
