    Specialism: Corporate commercial law, Medical & care, Medical practice law

    I qualified as a solicitor in 2002 having completed my training with a firm in Nottingham, where I worked as part of the corporate team for a further five years.

    Following a round the world trip, I worked with a firm in Reading for a number of years before making the move closer to home and joining Porter Dodson as a partner in 2012.

    I have extensive experience on the full range of business services, having worked with a broad range of businesses, ranging from local sole traders, partnerships and small owner-managed companies to larger regional, national and international corporates.

    My experience allows me to ease the legal process for my clients. I work with clients to understand their business and objectives so that I may deliver high quality focused advice and solutions relevant to their needs.

    I seek to build a strong personal relationship with my clients. I am the direct point of contact on all of my client work and, based in Taunton, I am on hand to meet with clients in any of our offices or at their preferred locations, as and when required.

    I’d just like to say thank you to you and your team for all the help and “handholding“ with the process.

    I’d certainly be very happy to recommend you and your firm to other advisers who may go through this themselves.
