Managing Partner - Corporate & Commercial
I qualified as a commercial and corporate solicitor in 1992 following a 10 year career as a British Army officer. After training and working in the City for Rowe & Maw (now Mayer Brown) on a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions, I then moved into the leisure and hospitality industry where I became CEO of a number of businesses including a NASDAQ listed international company. In 2009 I set up Ortolan Legal to introduce a radically different way of providing quality commercial legal advice without the exorbitant costs associated with conventional law firms. I remain actively involved in advising many of our clients and when I am not doing this or assisting our sister company, Ortolan People, I spend my spare time cooking, boring anyone who cares to listen about my latest food exploits and flying.
