Tell everyone a little about yourself.

I am a Corporate Partner at TLT where I specialise in venture capital, private equity and mergers and acquisitions in the technology, media and telecoms sector. I act for business angel investors, VCs, entrepreneurs and corporates on these types of transaction, and seek to provide support across the life cycle of entrepreneurial companies. I am a big fan of those with the courage to develop new ideas (or finance them) and am always willing to spend time with entrepreneurs to help them on their journey.

Are you currently running a tech company or looking to form one? Tell us about that!

Whilst I am an "adviser" rather than a true entrepreneur, I did run an internet venture before becoming a lawyer called "Unilawstudent.com".

Which tech companies have you been involved with in the past?

Open Bionics (investment from Intel Capital), Reach Robotics (Series A investment), Admedo (Series A and B), Intercity Technology (acquisitions of Gage Networks and Imerja), Pure360 (sale to SEP and Investec), SecondSync (sale to Twitter), Peregrine Immigration (sale to CIBT), Vysionics (sale to Jenoptik AG), Zero Carbon Foods (equity investments), Sub10 Systems (merger with Fastback Networks)

Introduction

I am a Corporate Partner TLT in Bristol specialising in venture capital work for technology companies. I have a passion for supporting early stage ventures, hold an MSc in Entrepreneurship and wrote the book "Business Law for the Entrepreneur".
