Jeff clients include owner-managed businesses, entrepreneurial individuals and large corporates. His work focuses primarily, but not exclusively in the technology (including print management and IT services), recruitment, publishing, events, engineering, manufacturing, sports, and fashion sectors. And typically works on transactions in the £1 million to £35 million range. Many of Jeff’s relationships with his clients span more than 10 years, demonstrating the value and importance he places on building lasting, personal connections.
Never one to shy away from complex transactions, Jeff likes to get right to the heart of the commercial issues at play. By analysing the fine print and astutely assessing the risks, he enables his clients to remain one step ahead at all times.
Jeff is married and has two married daughters. Whilst not working and spending time with his family, Jeff can be found supporting his local community where he volunteers for various charities and participates in fundraising activities. He also finds the time to play golf, watch football (as a long suffering Spurs Season ticket holder) and has recently taken up cycling.
