Caroline is a Partner and is Head of our Corporate & Commercial Law team, based in our Dorchester office.
Having previously worked in the corporate finance team of a large City of London firm, I am well aware of the importance of working with highly competent, dependable lawyers, building strong, lasting relationships with clients, and ensuring that we are readily available to our clients whenever they need us. Our Corporate & Commercial Law team prides itself on these values.
I specialise in the sale and purchase of companies and businesses, equity investment (including EIS and SEIS investments), equity issues and other forms of corporate finance.
Exit and succession planning for businesses forms a large part of my practice area. This includes putting in place shareholders’ agreements and bespoke articles of association, share options and other employee incentive arrangements, and dealing with management buy-outs (and buy-ins).
As well as companies, I deal with partnerships and LLPs and have advised many businesses on the transition from one type of business vehicle to another.
In the education sector, I advise schools on their conversion to academy status and have extensive experience in establishing and advising multi-academy trusts, as well as advising governing bodies and independent schools.
With over 35 years of legal experience, I also advise on a wide variety of commercial contracts, including agency, distribution, franchising, manufacturing, and co-operation agreements.
