After completing a law degree at Southampton University, I trained as a solicitor at a large City law firm. I have advised on a wide range of mergers, acquisitions and related transactions in respect of both private and public companies in the UK and internationally. I have led teams as adviser and principal on numerous corporate finance projects, including Stock Exchange listings, fund raisings and demergers. I also have extensive experience of contentious matters in the High Court and internationally.
I joined Gordon Dadds in 2013 as Managing Partner and in the period to 31 March 2017 the firm grew at a compound annual rate of 70% per annum, with fee income rising from £2.7 million to over £25 million.
Gordon Dadds Group plc, of which I am now the CEO, was the first London based law firm to list on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange in August 2017, raising £20 million of new money from investors to accelerate the firm’s growth.
