Simon Woodcock Partner Gatwick +44 (0)1293 554 092

I focus on advising clients on transaction advisory opportunities including M&A, disposals, fund raising and refinancing, as well supporting my clients in creating a strategic vision for their business. I like to challenge the way we do things and enjoy finding new, creative ways to structure deals to optimise the outcome for my clients.

I head up our local advisory team in our Gatwick office from where we look after dynamic organisations based across Surrey, Sussex and Kent. I love to spend time with ambitious management teams from all sectors although being based near an airport I spend a lot of time working with Grant Thornton's Business Support Services industry group and have a specific focus on aviation services.

I am married to Laura and we have two young daughters, Ava and Audrey. Having two young girls keeps our hands full although when we can find a babysitter or willing grandparent, Laura and I will often try to escape for a weekend away.
