Senior Associate, Lewis Silkin
I am Senior Associate in the Corporate, Commercial and Partnerships Legal Practice Groups.
I studied International Management and French at the University of Bath, spending the placement year of my degree working for an international company based in the south of France. I then completed my GDL and LPC before joining Lewis Silkin in 2011 to complete my training contract.
In my spare time I enjoy travelling, playing various sports and supporting the Welsh rugby team and Arsenal FC.
I advise both companies and individuals on a variety of corporate matters, including:
- company incorporations and corporate governance issues
- group reorganisations
- share and asset sales and acquisitions
- refinancing exercises
- Advertising & Marketing
I have particular experience of working with clients in the advertising, marketing and PR sectors and since qualification I have acted on a number of transactions for clients in this sphere, including a large group reorganisation for a high-profile creative agency and a number of UK and international acquisitions and disposals.
Throughout my time with the firm, both as a trainee and since qualification, I have worked with a variety of sports clients, including rugby and football clubs, players and agents. My work in this sector includes providing corporate, finance and regulatory advice. Most recently I have been involved with providing ongoing assistance to a football club with their financing arrangements and corporate governance.
I have always had a keen interest in sport and having played football for a number of years, including for Wales at junior level, I now head up the Lewis Silkin 5-a-side team.
