    • Meet Martin

    • Since qualifying in 1990, Martin’s down-to-earth personality and practical approach to briefs has won him an industry wide reputation as a leader in the fields of Corporate, Commercial and Employment law.

      His main focus is in the Technology Sector, particularly Fintech and Cryptocurrencies, where he has built up a substantial and loyal following due to his knowledge and passion for the subject area. His clients range from serial entrepreneurs to mid-level corporates. 

      His work for these clients includes drafting shareholders’ agreements, directors’ service agreements, terms of business and share schemes, mid-level merger and acquisition advice and advising on ultra-high value Cryptocurrency deals. A recent notable deal involved advising existing shareholders of a tech-based company on a high value equity investment. 

      Martin’s Employment advice largely consists of advising on board level employment agreements, tax-advantageous employee share schemes, conflict resolution, restructuring and advice on the employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions.

      Martin offers bespoke, personalised support to all his clients. Working as an extension of their team, he focuses on building trust, getting to the core of their business and aims, and making himself available whenever needed. 

      Martin is an avid follower of AFC Wimbledon and Surrey County Cricket Club, and can often be found cheering on the Irish Rugby Team. He is tech-savvy and recently spent time with a software developer to better understand the logic process involved in developing a Distributed Application. He is also the tech help desk for his extended family! 

    • “With real world experience, unique skills and understanding in leading edge technologies, and a pragmatic approach to business, Martin is an important part of our company’s success. He is more than just our legal advisor, he is part of our team.” - John Reilly, Managing Partner
