About Me

What’s your role? Being part of the management team in a successful business like Coffin Mew really helps when working with clients to achieve their goals. I know exactly what it’s like to run a business, so I match my professional and business skills so I can advise clients in a practical, commercial, understandable and timely way. I focus on solutions not problems. So whether advising a disparate group of clients owning shares in a business, with various different approaches, right through to large scale cross-border transactions, we apply the same rigorous routines, always focused on the client’s goal and agreed outcomes – delivered with clear communication, no fuss, on time and on budget. What are your specialisms? -Getting deals done -Getting to the root of problems and solving them -Drafting legal documents in plain English, reflecting often sophisticated deal terms Your experience? Over many years of doing deals, we recognise that markets, trends and levels of sophistication have changed markedly. Buyers of all professional services have also become much more sophisticated and so our service reflects this ever-changing landscape. No two deals are ever the same and I work across numerous sectors, with different types of client and on all kinds of deal structure and size, such as a recent incorporation of a partnership business into an LLP, including a separation of a property partnership (with an associated partnership agreement focused on property issues), transfer of assets, including shares, into the LLP, and the creation of a modern plain English members’ agreement for the LLP. The transactions which I have undertaken over the years are many and varied – for example, I recently acted for a high net worth individual in a trade acquisition for £3m, including earn-out, stock and net asset adjustments underpinned by retention protections. Which five words best describe you? Dedicated, organised, incisive, easy-going, calm Which four people would you invite to dinner? Chrissie Wellington (female multiple Iron Man World Champion); Sir Alex Ferguson; Frank Skinner; Stephen Fry Three things we didn’t know about you? I had laser surgery on my eyes in 1996 – when the procedure was in its infancy; I have run four marathons, and would like to try something a bit more strenuous…; I have been at Coffin Mew for 30 years. What was the first record you bought? “Sladest” by Slade

So we now have fee free bank accounts.  It sounds a good idea - no fees, and no capacity for dangerous overdrafts.

But is there a downside?
