Roy is a corporate lawyer whom clients use when they need a pragmatic and no nonsense approach. He has a creative approach in finding solutions to problems.

He leads and has trained a team which has completed over three hundred reorganisations since 2020. He acts for a number of specialist tax consultancies and their clients; and is the first port of call for those needing to undertake those processes.

Roy also has over 35 years’ experience of helping owner managed and family businesses with business sales, business purchases and their internal structures and strategy. He has particular experience with engineering, financial services and tax consultancies.

He was for three years Chairman of Leicestershire Business Voice; and for 9 years the deputy Chairman and Chief Judge of the Leicestershire Business Awards.
