I am a Chartered Governance Professional who has spent over twenty years setting up, advising on and running corporate governance for companies of all shapes and sizes on multiple continents. Francine and I previously worked together at an international asset management company where I led the corporate secretarial function, so, when she asked me to work with LOVE LAW FIRM as its outside expert on corporate governance, I was delighted to say yes.
Throughout my career, I’ve seen the importance of maintaining good corporate records, and the financial and personal costs of not doing it. Put simply: unless it’s written down, no matter what you intended, or how unanimous the decision, it never happened. This can cost you – your money, your business or even its future.
As the son of a businessman, I love serving the entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small businesses of the world. Every single one is different. They all have their own skills and motivations, challenges and successes, and, in the same way, no two governance systems are identical. It’s that variety and chance to help people find a solution that works for their business which make me very happy to work with the terrific clientele of LOVE LAW FIRM and become part of their success stories.
After attending The University of Northumbria and studying law at The University of Sheffield, I have worked with a variety of companies in their corporate secretarial teams, ultimately leading a number of them. I am a Fellow of the ICSA (The Governance Institute) which demonstrates my knowledge, skills and experience in the field.
I live in the United Kingdom with my wife, our young daughter and our daughter’s best friend – our family dog. When I’m not working, you will find me making the most of the beautiful Hampshire countryside with all of them.
Working with you, we can protect your most valuable asset – your business.
