Corporate Law in England
The Oriel, Sydenham Road,, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 3SR
At Moore Barlow, we focus on helping entrepreneurs and leaders of businesses and organisations, and private individuals and families through the opportunities, the challenges, and the sometimes life-altering circumstances that may come your way.
For us, it is all about starting a conversation and building a relationship between people who care about the outcome, rather than just between a ‘firm’ and a ‘client’. By understanding what’s at stake for you, be that as a business, organisation or as an individual, we can apply a personalised approach and the highest standards of care, so you get the best outcome for your specific needs.
In the commercial world, we help entrepreneurial businesses thrive in the long-term, and we also support individuals and families protect and transfer their wealth. Your immediate need is part of a complex whole. So we always assess the full context, making sure that we understand everything that’s going on in your life. Only by doing this can we make sure the solution fits the big picture and helps you achieve your long-term goals.
We don’t simply do the job in a vacuum, in the same way each time. Instead, we think about the best way for each individual person we’re advising. Often, you will need advice from different people in our firm who bring their expertise and experience to bear. Our firm is the right size to make this happen: we all know each other and work with each other all the time, so everything is coordinated and efficiently run. You’ll get a seamless team working on your behalf.
We know that your plans and aspirations are long-term. So our advice always takes this into account. We also build teams who work together so you will get to know us over time. You can only get the best advice within a long-term relationship and this is very much our bread and butter.
At Moore Barlow we are like you. We have our own dynamic growth business to run, and we too have families to support. This, combined with years of experience, means we completely ‘get’ what you need from advisors like us.
We are also proud of our open and communicative culture, which means you always know what’s going on and where you are in the process.Show more +
As a Corporate Partner, I advise on mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracts, shareholder arrangements and partnership law.
I enjoy identifying and achieving the right solutions and outcomes for clients and strongly believe that good service consists of responsive communication. I look for long lasting solutions that reduce complexity, delay and risk.
I trained and qualified at Clifford Chance and spent the first eight years of my career working on a broad range of finance, company and commercial matters in the City. I believe that the best corporate lawyers are likely to have a broad range of experience of business and life.
I have a particular expertise in advising schools on mergers and in relation to their commercial contracts and other commercial issues.
I am an experienced school governor, having chaired the board at a very successful prep school in West Sussex for 6 years and served as vice-chair and chair of finance in the maintained sector for 5 years.
I have served as a member of the Law Society’s Company Law Committee and regularly contribute to the Solicitors’ Journal, for which I write a quarterly update on commercial contract law.Show more +
