A corporate lawyer who gets the deal over the line.
Chris works with a broad mix of owner-managers, SMEs, and individuals with significant personal wealth – particularly in the sports and manufacturing sectors. He also acts for banks, borrowers and private equity investors.
Chris has spent the past 10 years helping businesses grow and prosper, advising on corporate finance and business strategy including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, company or group restructuring, business disposals, investment opportunities, succession planning and exit strategies. He also advises on banking and finance, private equity investments, shareholders' agreements, directors' duties, corporate governance and partnership matters.
Examples of how Chris has helped clients include:
- concluding a corporate finance deal in a very short-period of time by dissuading those involved from adopting unreasonable positions that might have thwarted the deal;
- helping a business in financial crisis raise funds to continue to trade; and
- helping successive owners of a family business maximise the value and tax efficiency of their enterprise with tailored investment, restructuring and succession planning advice.
