Mike is a partner and Head of the firm's Transaction Services Team (TST). The TST was created in 2010 in order to give clients greater flexibility and to improve cost efficiency. It now consists of over 100 people, including apprentices, paralegals and managers based primarily in Manchester but with coverage across all of our UK offices. The TST delivers work through the use of people, process and technology in either a standalone or an integrated way alongside qualified lawyers.

Prior to setting up and running TST, Mike worked in the corporate team and specialised in M&A and private equity, advising on acquisitions, disposals, investments and corporate re-organisations.
