Walk the Tightrope Cohort:  Spring 2018

I specialise in:  Providing legal advice to clients in the financial services industry on structured finance transactions, debt restructurings and loan portfolio acquisitions and disposals.

I am passionate about:  Finding balance between my different identities – as solicitor, partner, father, husband and citizen – and helping others to do the same.

What I value most about the Tightrope Walker community:  The opportunity to challenge my thinking with diverse perspectives and be part of a community that is making a difference.
