About Paul…

Paul works closely with his clients and their teams advising on all corporate matters, taking time to understand their businesses with a view to assisting them in achieving their goals.


  • Company/Business Sales, Purchases and Mergers
  • Banking, Lending & Security
  • Reorganisations and Demergers
  • Corporate Finance & Investment
  • Shareholder and Joint Venture Agreements

Paul has also helped to develop our Charity Law practice, and regularly advises charity trustees on their duties and obligations under both Charity and Company Law.

The most rewarding part of the job is completing a transaction. Everyone involved in corporate transactions works very hard to get the job over the line and completed. Afterwards, knowing that you’ve played a part in someone’s new venture or business expansion, or setting a client up for retirement if they’re selling out, is extremely rewarding
