An approachable business solicitor explaining the law in plain English

Growing your business usually involves getting organised from a legal point of view. This might be because an external funder requires you to have your affairs in order. Or, because you have heard horror stories from a business contact. I will help you put in place the legal documents and structures you business needs to prosper. This might be a Shareholders Agreement dealing with company management. Or, Employment Contracts for your staff. You may need to be sure that your intellectual property, such as software or a logo is protected. There may be finance documents imposing a considerable burden on you and which you need to understand. Give me a call and I will give you peace of mind.


I have been advising businesses and companies as a solicitor now for nearly twenty years. What I have learnt during that time enables me to advise on company law, partnerships, contracts, employment contracts, intellectual property and websites. In particular, I have expertise advising tech companies, but I am always interested in any kind of business
