Charlotte is a Senior Associate in our Corporate and Private Equity team.

Charlotte’s practice focuses on UK and international private equity and M&A.  She advises portfolio companies, owner-led businesses and management teams on a variety of transactions including acquisitions, bolt-ons, exits, restructurings and corporate governance.

Whilst at her previous firm, Charlotte assisted on the following key projects:

  • Advising a leading UK software provider on a series of 14 acquisitions in the IT sector alongside lead advisor, Travers Smith.
  • Advising a private equity Portfolio Company on a mix of ‘business as usual’ commercial legal issues, across real estate, employment, commercial contracts and data protection, which subsequently resulted in the opportunity to become a secondee for several months at the business.
  • Assisting on several multi-million pound acquisitions alongside Linklaters, including advising on legal due diligence and ancillary deal documentation.
  • Advising a manufacturing based private equity Portfolio Company on a strategic acquisition and continuing the relationship with further Management incentive work.

During her training, Charlotte has had the opportunity to be a secondee in the City at a large media and publishing corporation and subsequently, at a US headquartered luxury travel company.
