I have a pragmatic and commercially focused approach to assisting our clients, with their interests at the forefront of my considerations. I work from both our Basildon and Chelmsford offices, and am available on 01245 453847.
I advise businesses on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and a wide range of commercial contracts. I have also assisted borrowers with secured and unsecured lending matters. My experience includes assisting SMEs, as well as national and international entities on a variety of commercial and corporate law matters.
Prior to becoming a solicitor, I worked as a tutor at an Essex based community college. During that time I delivered the CILEX Level 2 Qualification, along with a variety of A Level qualifications.
My experience in the education sector inspires my work as an education solicitor and I lead on Birkett Long’s education sector offering advising a range of educational institutions, including maintained schools, single academy trusts, multi-academy trusts, independent schools, and further and higher education institutions.
In my spare time I can be found on the golf course or on a badminton court. I am an avid supporter of West Ham United Football Club. I enjoy mainly rock and indie music, including AC/DC and the Arctic Monkeys.
