I have been a solicitor for over 40 years and have wide experience of the law and its operation. The rule of law is a framework for Civil Society in which enterprises contribute to the well being and wealth of its citizens.

My knowledge encompasses articles of association containing special provisions, privileges and protections, non-resident trusts, mergers and acquisitions, shareholders’ agreements and commercial contracts of all types, licences and franchises.
