full bio

I am part of the Capital Markets team in London. We represent issuers, investment banks and investors on initial public offerings and secondary offerings and advise listed companies on corporate and securities law matters and corporate governance. We also advise UK companies either dual-listed in the United States or solely listed in the United States. 

Why Cooley?

This is easy. The people and the clients. My colleagues are my friends, and our clients are companies who change the world. That makes for a pretty awesome day job. 

Some of the clients with whom I work

Autolus Therapeutics, Bicycle Therapeutics, Endava, Wizz Air, Silence Therapeutics, Renalytix AI, Uber, and many more (including a significant number of investment banks)

I’m inspired by
