Commercial Solicitor

Our people

I am a Solicitor at Oliver & Co Solicitors in the Corporate and Commercial Department. I joined in October 2014 as a Paralegal Executive and quickly progressed to become a Trainee Solicitor.

I undertake work for our Corporate & Commercial clients, helping to look after the various legal aspects of their businesses. I particularly enjoy working within a challenging commercial environment, helping to achieve the aims of our diverse range of clients. These clients range from multi-academy trusts in the education sector and from local start-ups through to international entities with multi million pound turnovers.

My particular experience and expertise centre on providing advice on commercial contracts, all forms of acquisitions and disposals, shareholders’ agreements, bridging finance and funding, and academy conversions.

I pride myself on my attention to detail and in applying a pragmatic approach to advising clients. I take into account their particular requirements to advise on the best options available to them. I believe that this approach is central to meeting their expectations and building a relationship based on trust and confidence.

Thank you for all you have done for me and I can appreciate in your line of work maybe a thank you doesn’t always go far enough. But I appreciate the way you have dealt with this and concluded it so well for me.
