I am a member of the LTN consultancy team with over 25 years’ experience working in the City as a lawyer serving the leveraged finance and private equity markets. I qualified as a solicitor in 1996 and become a partner in 2002, spending over 15 years as a partner at Linklaters over five of which as Head of Leveraged Finance. Given my leadership role, I take a keen interest in, and focus on, leadership, resilience and teamwork. I was a mentor to a large number of lawyers and also an ally to a number of LGBTQ+ members of staff. I became interested in the various techniques and styles of leadership with a view to developing a culture of elite performance.
