Tell us a bit more about your legal expertise?
I advise and act for clients on a range of matters including share and business sales and purchases, investment agreements, commercial contracts, corporate structures. I have a keen interest in sustainable and renewable energy - the potential of reducing human negative impact on the environment. We all have to do our bit to save the planet, contributing to social health and wellbeing in the process. This also links to my work in the Gulf States and Middle Eastern region where there is huge potential for creating businesses which enhance human, cultural, wellbeing and social cohesion.
You are dual qualified?
Yes, after completing my legal studies I went into the Audit sector of the accountancy profession to train with two of the “big 4” international accountancy firms. My dual qualification in law and accountancy gives me the ability to cross the boundaries between the two disciplines, to easily understand the concepts relating to both. This also allows me to provide enhanced value to my clients – adding a commercial perspective when advising clients on corporate and commercial legal matters.
What do you love about what you do?
I love being able to work with multinational and multicultural clients. Working with people who are passionate about their business, with the drive to succeed while benefiting their community.
What does success mean to you?
Success means having good health and happiness for me and my family and helping others to achieve the same.
