What do you do for your clients at Ignition Law? 

I am a corporate transactional lawyer and I provide commercially focused and pragmatic legal advice to a range of clients, from owner managers and start-up businesses through to listed companies. I have particular experience in the technology sector and I also advise on commercial agreements, often in that sector.


What gets me out of bed in the morning

First, three boys, then exercise and finally, coffee.


An entrepreneur I admire

None in particular. You come across a lot of entrepreneurs when you are a corporate lawyer and I have always gotten a particular satisfaction from the look on an individual seller’s face at a completion meeting when the documents are being signed, the funds are flowing and that person knows that all of that effort and sacrifice was worth it. This has always been one of my favourite aspects of the job.


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

I was recently given Barack Obama’s book, the Promised Land, as a present. I’m really not sure when I’ll get around to reading it though, so I suspect it will stay on the shelf for some time!


A social cause I care about is…

Climate change and the environment more generally.
