I’m an M&A deal leader currently on a six month secondment in our Copenhagen office. I joined the Clearwater International Manchester office in 2016, having previously worked for PwC where I spent three years working within the audit practice and qualified as a Chartered Accountant.

Since joining Clearwater I have worked on numerous M&A and debt advisory transactions across the UK advising both private equity and corporate clients. Notable transactions include advising Imtech UK & Ireland on its cross-border sale to EDF Energy, BCN Group on its sale to Beech Tree Private Equity and Direct Healthcare Group on its debt funding for the acquisition of Kirton Healthcare.

At Clearwater, I’m able to advise a varied client base, ranging from entrepreneurial owner managers to institutional investors and multi-national corporates. Each of these clients requires a bespoke approach to meet their needs, and the challenge of maximising the value they can achieve is what keeps me motivated.
