Profile

Services

Robert is a partner in the corporate team, acting for clients in relation to mid-market private mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments and corporate banking.

He has acted on a variety of M&A and banking transactions, both UK-based and cross-border, liaising with foreign counsel throughout Europe, the US and the Far East. His background in corporate restructuring gives him a unique insight when considering transactions, and he also works alongside the BDB Pitmans’ restructuring and insolvency team on restructuring mandates.

Having acted for all the major UK clearing banks, he has an appreciation of the various pressure points likely to arise for corporate borrowers in banking matters, whether new bilateral or syndicated lending, refinancing, security issues or intercreditor positions. Robert has also advised clients in relation to the various current Government funding schemes (CLBILS, CBILS, Future Fund, Bounce Bank loans).
