Having started my career at Equity & Law, I took the opportunity to create my own company at the age of 27 on the back of the friendships and strong professional relationships I had built up with my existing clients. I continue to service clients whilst pursuing acquisitions and chairing our investment committee to determine our ongoing strategy.
