Meet the team... Corporate & Commercial

We asked our Corporate & Commercial team a few questions to get to know the team. Ensure you follow them for all the latest updates...


 Tell us, in no more than 30 words, what your team does.

We act for businesses and individuals on all aspects of corporate and commercial law including sales and purchases, structures, investments (from private and institutional sources), IP, IT and commercial contracts.

What is your team business highlight of the last 12 months?

Working on several high profile transactions within the North West, most notably acting for the management team as part of Palatine’s £38m secondary buyout of WHP Group.

What can we expect from your department in the next 12 months? 

We are an even bigger and better team following a number of new joiners and some well-deserved promotions – so expect a high level of activity!

Manchester is absolutely buzzing with networking events, conferences and awards ceremonies.  What are the events that you are most looking forward to in the business calendar? 

Our annual races event at Chester for clients and intermediaries, and the Dealmaker’s dinner in October where the great and good of the Corporate community of Manchester meet.

Who in the department is:

The joker: Richard “dad joke” Parkinson

The disciplinarian: Stacie Williams keeps us all in check

The athlete: Sara Bluston trains like a beast, looks like a beauty

The party animal: Dance floor queen Vicky Protano

The boffin: Jane Kirkham loves the geeky side of life

If your team was a TV family, which one would it be and why?

The Kardashians because we have a high female to male ratio

What’s the most obscure hobby amongst the team? 

Rachel Dudley loves to get crafty in her spare time and even has her own craft room.

What would your team anthem or motto be? 

The Clash – I Fought The Law

In the words of the late, great Muhammad Ali: I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.
