I spend my time working on the business finding out what clients actually need rather than what solicitors think they want. From there, I focus on how to deliver the best service at the best price – this involves my on-going search for talent and implementing ideas to improve our service.
I am fascinated by enterprise and the motives for those prepared to risk all and set up a business. With a tax and accountancy as well as a legal background, I offer the rare ability to put commerciality into practice. I oversee matters spanning all of the practice areas drawing on many years of experience to provide direction. I am not as grand as to have forgotten that Gannons was a start up once upon a time.
After qualifying in the accountancy profession as a Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA), I qualified as a solicitor and gained experience at a major US international law firm before establishing Gannons.

Why I love my job
I give back to the economy via job creation, training and taxes. It feels good to know I am actively contributing to Brand GB. I have learnt a lot along the way and have been very privileged in working with some industry greats. I pass their knowledge shared with me onto my team who pass it onto our clients – another great feeling. What is there not to like?
