Gareth Williams-Davies  – Capital Law Limited

Displaying ‘dedication beyond the call of duty, along with expertise and professionalism’, Capital Law Limited provides a ‘solutions-led‘ approach to private and listed companies on transactional work in the immediate geographical confines, as well as beyond the Welsh borders. Under the guidance of ‘unassuming and intelligent’ corporate head Tom Kelleher  and ‘effervescent’ senior partner Duncan Macintosh  (who was himself formerly in-house counsel at 3i Group), the team has particularly strong credentials among stakeholders within the private equity/growth capital sector, including funds and management teams. As well as his continued work for core client WestBridge on an array of investments and exits, Kelleher also recently deepened the firm’s ties with BGF, acting for it for the first time in a sponsor capacity in relation to its investment in Welsh online retailer Fun Brands Group. ‘Passionate and talented‘ senior associates Laura Spendiff and Gareth Williams-Davies  are also key members of team and are recognised as the ‘next generation of business leaders‘ for the firm. Maria Coggins  leads the commercial offering at the firm and excels in advising on commercial contracts and data protection. Philip Barratt joined TLT in December 2021.
