Although an auditor by trade, I specialise in advising businesses in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector with a particular expertise in publishing. Working with businesses across multiple locations, I am proud to lead our team within this exciting, fast-paced sector, offering our clients bespoke advice and providing real insight and expertise.
As well as working for privately held and PE-backed companies, I also act for a number of AIM and full list media companies. Over a career spanning 30 years, I have extensive experience of the accounting and financial reporting issues facing businesses. In particular the interpretation of deal structures and the valuation of intangible assets. I have worked with my clients through numerous transactions (buy and sell side) and IPOs, and am familiar with the key issues buyers and investors look for, combining the regulatory and the practical aspects.
I am a member of the London leadership team with responsibility for our London business, working with other partners to drive this £300 million turnover part of the firm and the people who work in it. The role enables me to look at client matters from a different perspective – putting myself in their shoes regarding not only leadership but many of the day-to-day business issues they face.
