I am one of the Directors of MKB Law with specific responsibility for overseeing the commercial and corporate business undertaken by the practice.
Having qualified as a Solicitor in 1986, I have been a Partner in private practice since 1991. I was one of the founding partners of MKB Law and I am delighted to have seen it grow.
I have practised in most areas of law, but at an early stage I began to concentrate on commercial transactions and disputes. I have undertaken some of the most extensive site assembly and development schemes in Northern Ireland and advised on all legal aspects, including planning, of those schemes. I have also led teams dealing with some of the largest disposals of private businesses in Northern Ireland. As such I have become the “trusted advisor” to many local businesses and businessmen.
In recent years I have spent a lot of time advising borrowers about their relationships with banks. This has included acting for borrowers in substantial High Court actions or negotiating out the terms of renewal facilities including Loan Market Agreement style documents.
