I help my clients on all corporate and commercial aspects of operating their business.

I provide assistance from the initial start-up or purchase of a business to the drafting of bespoke commercial documents such as website terms and conditions and distribution agreements. I enjoy getting to understand my client’s business which allows me to proactively protect them and their livelihood.

I regularly advise clients on data protection whether they require to tweak their existing policies to ensure GDPR compliance or if they are starting from scratch.

I get to know my clients' businesses intimately and how they operate in practice.
