What can you contribute to a pre-start entrepreneur over the first year in business?
As an experienced Business Lawyer, I have advised many businesses over the years, ranging from Start-Ups through to larger organisations with multi-million-pound turnovers.  I have also launched and managed successful businesses myself and therefore I am well-placed to be able to advise you on the practical steps you need to take to set up and thrive in business.

Areas of Speciality/Methods of Mentoring Style:
I have an approachable manner and look forward to hearing about your business idea and working together to make it a success.  I am happy to work with you across the following areas (amongst others):-

  • Business idea / model formulation
  • Cashflow projection
  • Pricing
  • SWOT analysis
  • Marketing planning
  • Social media strategy
  • Growth planning including real estate and HR considerations

Business Sector(s):
I have particular experience of working with businesses in the following sectors (amongst others):-

  • E-Commerce
  • Recruitment
  • Professional Services
  • Real Estate

  • Hospitality & Events

Past Mentor Experience with Pre-Start/New Start:

In addition to the many businesses I have acted for over the years in my professional capacity as a Business Lawyer, I also run an organisation which specialises in providing business and legal training for Pre-Start-Ups and Start-Ups.

Past Work Experience:
I graduated with a degree in Management from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2003.  I qualified as a Solicitor in 2008 and since then I have worked both in private practice and also in-house for two different UK PLCs.

I launched my own niche law firm in 2012, which specialised in Commercial and Employment Law. Following a period of growth, I merged my practice with a larger firm, whereupon I became Partner and Head of Commercial.  Following a takeover in 2018, I became a Consultant Solicitor enabling me time to work on other projects that interest me, including this Mentoring Scheme.
