My role

I head up our funding team, working closely with my fellow-partner Jon Coane. I lead teams of advisors, from various disciplines on complex funding and finance-related projects including bonds, private placements, revolving credit facilities and joint ventures, as well as securitisation and charging of assets.

My experience

I am a recognised leader in my field of social housing finance (Chambers & Partners) and my corporate background at one of the largest law firms in the country adds valuable perspective to my work. I act for housing associations and not-for-profit businesses looking to grow, diversify, merge and raise money from banks, institutional funders, local authorities and the capital markets, where I work closely with treasury and finance advisers across the housing and third sectors.

My specialisms

  • Bonds
  • Private placements
  • Revolving credit facilities/term loan facilities/secured loan facilities
  • Development and project finance
