Credentials

  • LLB (Hons) Law with Accountancy (Scots and English Law)

I work as a solicitor in the Corporate team at our Dunfermline office.

I have assisted in a broad range of corporate and commercial work, including company and business sales and purchases, corporate restructurings (including restructuring share capital, share capital reduction and share buybacks), commercial contracts and intellectual property.

My solutions driven approach, brand mentality and multi-industry experience of working in the music, fashion, entertainment and finance industries are the cornerstone of my ability to understand the challenges different businesses face and the industry in which they operate.
