What do you do for your clients at Ignition Law? 

I advise Ignition’s clients in relation to a broad range of corporate and finance transactions.  As a finance and banking law specialist I advise clients on all aspects of financing their business, including equity investments, convertible loan notes, loans, including director and shareholder loans, acquisition and real estate finance, the granting or taking of security, intercreditor issues and restructuring and insolvency advice.  I have advised Ignition’s clients both in their capacity as borrower and lender.  In advising on, structuring and executing transactions on behalf of our clients my focus is to work with the client to find a solution which works for the client’s business as it is at present but which will also work for the business as it grows and develops.

What gets me out of bed in the morning

My alarm clock, if my children haven’t already shouted me out of bed. Other than that, the chance to pursue a challenging and interesting career assisting entrepreneurs in building innovative new businesses.

An entrepreneur I admire

An entrepreneur I admire is Harriet Hastings, who identified a gap in the food gifting market and in 2007, together with her husband, founded Biscuiteers. While the company has grown exponentially, I really admire that Hastings has remained true to her original business idea, scaling up production while ensuring all her products are made by hand and can truly be described as little works of edible art. On top of running Biscuiteers, Hastings is a mum to four children – I’d love to know how she does it.

A social cause I care about is….

The need for us to all live in a more sustainable manner.  Having children has not only brought into focus the need for me to adapt the way I live to ensure that resources are preserved for future generations but also the importance of educating the next generation, by example, how to live in a more sustainable way.
