Adam trained with Wollastons prior to its merger with Birketts and qualified in 2003.
Adam leads Birketts’ banking and finance offering in Cambridge, and supports the firm’s banking and finance team across the region, as a dedicated banking and finance lawyer. He acts for both lenders and borrowers and his familiarity with the styles of documentation and working of most major UK banks means that he can cut through the issues with efficiency to achieve the commercial objective at hand, whether that is to secure a new key account for a bank client or to secure project finance for a borrower with the minimum of hassle and impact on the intended project. His experience in the banking and finance sector has brought about a speciality in acquisition/leveraged finance, refinancings and general corporate lending. Recently he has advised on asset based finance, including some bespoke invoice discounting arrangements for specific construction and logistics clients, both for working capital and project finance purposes. He has also advised on non-standard lending, security and intercreditor structures, often finding innovative solutions.
Adam began his career as a corporate finance lawyer working predominantly on merger and acquisition, corporate finance and corporate restructuring transactions, whilst building up a portfolio of banking and finance clients acting for both lenders and borrowers. Adam has had a wide exposure to trade sales and acquisitions and management buy outs and ins, including in respect of some household names.
In Chambers [UK 2012] Adam was singled out as 'One to watch' and clients singled him out for being "detailed and responsive."
