Find me on LinkedIn

I am a co-founder of Arbor Law with over 20 years advising clients on corporate and securities matters, regulatory compliance and governance.

I began my career at Baker McKenzie in Chicago, relocating shortly thereafter to the London office as a senior associate in the Capital Markets Group of the Corporate Group after which I served as the UK General Counsel/Group Company Secretary for two FTSE 250 London Stock Exchange listed companies before returning to private practice at Arbor Law.

Legal Specialties

I have a wide range of experience advising clients – mostly international clients – on domestic and international corporate transactional work, in particular capital raising (from seed to IPO) and M&A.

I have a particular interest in the financial services sector – in addition to transactional support, I assist firms to expand internationally/obtain regulatory authorisation and provide strategic regulatory compliance and governance advice.

Clients also rely on me to serve as fractional UK general counsel as well as oversee the delivery of outsourced compliance services.

What Clients Say

That my experience in international private practice and in-house as a general counsel gives me a unique commercial perspective to understand their business and provide pragmatic advice of exceptional quality.

Behind the lawyer

Since law school, I have been passionately involved in pro bono legal work, representing individuals wrongly convicted and victims of human rights abuses. I also love to spend time playing tennis and abroad with my family in Spain.
