Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

As an investment funds lawyer I'm passionate about the positive social impact that investment funds can achieve. I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the leading impact funds in the sector, both as adviser and board member, and have seen the real difference they can make to the communities in which we live and work.  Those funds are changing the futures of people who are all too often forgotten by the world of financial services.
