About Me

I am a partner in our Banking and Finance group and my practice focuses on banking and finance matters with a particular emphasis on leveraged and acquisition finance and corporate lending.

I advise all types of lenders (banks and debt funds) and borrowers on a variety of both domestic and cross-border finance transactions, in particular in leveraged finance and corporate finance.

I also have extensive experience in debt restructurings and have advised creditors on several lender led transactions.
