Charlotte Barker

Senior Consultant




What do you do for your clients at Ignition Law? 

 My practice covers mergers & acquisitions, equity investments, joint ventures, family investment companies, corporate governance, restructures, LLP agreements and general corporate advice with a focus on small to medium sized owner managed businesses.  I pride myself on understanding my clients’ needs and goals – giving concise, straightforward commercial advice and providing support during negotiations.


What gets me out of bed in the morning

My two young sons who always start the day loudly and with great enthusiasm!  After that and a large cup of tea, a desire to help clients achieve their goals and to get from A to B in the clearest and most efficient way.


An entrepreneur I admire

 I admire anyone who has the imagination to think of a new business venture and the drive and determination to get up and make it happen. 


What would you put on your Ignition Law playlist or bookshelf? 

 Elizabeth – The Struggle for the Throne by David Starkey – I love history and particularly the brutal world of the Tudor Court.


A social cause I care about is…

 Child food poverty – I struggle to accept that in a country with so much and supermarkets packed to the roof with food that some children have to start and end the day hungry.
