Corporate and commercial law are my areas of expertise so whether you are a company, partnership, charity or sole trader, I can help you.
I qualified in 2002 having trained in a niche commercial law practice in London’s West End. I remained at the firm following qualification and had exposure to a range of clients from individual sole traders through to listed companies. Work included purchases as well as commercial contracts and company advice. I moved back to East Anglia in 2003 and joined Gotelee at that time. Following a move to a local competitor in 2006 I have now re-joined Gotelee as a Partner and continue to undertake a broad range of corporate and commercial work.
I believe that in order to be able to give clear accurate and appropriate advice to my clients, it is essential that I know their business not least for the prevention of later problems. By knowing the business and its aims I am best placed to assist you in managing your legal risk.
I assist all businesses from Companies, Partnerships, Charities and sole traders.
The Legal 500 which is an impartial view on legal service provides says (2015): Gotelee Solicitors provides ‘excellent service at a reasonable cost, and compares well with higher-profile firms’. Clients praise Petra Sharp’s ‘first class ability to communicate complex terminology in a language that is easy to understand’.
I have also been “Highly recommended” in the Legal 500 2013/2014 edition.
