I was interested to read the recent case of IX v IY  which considered the question...
I specialise in advising SMEs and entrepreneurs, both domestic and international, on aspects of corporate finance, company and commercial law.
I enjoy working within the corporate community, both in the UK and overseas, particularly US and Asia. Particularly close to my heart is Central Europe, where with the benefit of my Slovakian heritage I would like to utilise some of my professional expertise.
Prior to joining Birkett Long, I worked at UK and international London based niche firms over the past 10 years, with focus on cross-border corporate transactions, capital markets (Official List and AIM) within the healthcare and biotech, telecoms, technology, mining, leisure and the foods sector. Previously, I have also been involved in matters concerning financial regulation and investigation, commercial dispute resolution, insolvency and bankruptcy.
I hold a business law degree from a London university and a postgraduate diploma in legal practice (corporate) from (formerly) The College of Law in London.
My spare time is almost exclusively dedicated to my friends and family, social events, theatre and cinema, or a short travel break. I also speak Slovak and Czech, and understand some German and Polish.
