I'm an audit and advisory partner, and have spent the majority of my career as a partner working with media and technology clients across our wider London practice. As well as leading the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) industry group I also act as the firm's point of contact for US work, and have many clients that either report in US accounting standards or require audits to US private and public auditing standards.
Although I have worked with large listed clients, the binding characteristics of most of my clients is that they are fast-growing and entrepreneurial, and for the main are backed by private equity or are AIM-listed. I have worked with my clients through the IPO process, both in the UK and the US, and in raising funds from private equity and VCTs.
I particular enjoy the challenges of business that create, own and exploit IP, currently acting for the UK's largest live music business and a number independent TV production and business publishing businesses.
Outside work, alongside my interest in all things tech, I get on my bike as often as my family will allow.
