Solicitor in the governance and commercial team
I assist with a wide range of work for social housing associations, local authorities, charities and general commercial clients. I specialise in advising on transactions involving joint venture transactions, company restructuring and corporate and commercial transactions.
I joined Anthony Collins Solicitors in September 2018, having completed my training contract at another law firm where I completed the following seats in corporate (which included acquisition and mergers); commercial; commercial property and litigation and insolvency.
My experience includes assisting on large joint venture projects in the social housing and local authorities sectors, assisting with the preparation and negotiation of commercial contracts and advising on company restructuring and providing advice to majority and minority shareholders. In addition, I have experience in drafting and negotiating share purchase agreements; disclosure letters and advising on commercial due diligence.
