I work with corporate and business clients in a variety of industry sectors. My experience includes  negotiating and drafting commercial contracts, capital raising, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder agreements, company law, financing, leasing and intellectual property. I also have particular expertise in franchising, licensing and joint venture arrangements.
