In his own words...

"Having set up and run a number of businesses, I can relate totally to the challenges that SMEs face but also can identify opportunities and ways to enhance their businesses and operations, manage risk and ultimately support them in their journey to being successful and rewarding enterprises. This advisory role is extremely satisfying and a vital part of any business is to ensure that the legal foundations and contracts are watertight to prevent any surprises at a later date".
