Why I'm no ordinary professional:
I make a real effort to develop an understanding of my clients’ commercial requirements and then tailor my advice to meet my clients’ business requirements.
I also focus on ensuring that the transaction is project managed in a manner to minimise inefficiency and delay so as to ensure that the project is delivered on time with a minimum of fuss.
I am always readily accessible and wiling to work closely with my clients to meet their commercial objectives.
A bit about me
Do you have a hidden talent?
I probably do but it is well hidden.
If you weren't a lawyer what would you be doing?
I would still be involved in corporate finance, but probably as a corporate finance accountant.
