Career

Alastair is a partner in Forsters' Corporate team specialising in acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, shareholder arrangements and group restructurings. He is commercially focused, having undertaken three client secondments over the course of his career, and strives to ensure that his clients' business as well as legal objectives are achieved. 

Alastair works with a broad range of clients, including high net worth individuals, family offices, entrepreneurs, private equity firms, large corporate entities and property developers.

He has particular expertise in advising on the corporate aspects of private client matters.  His experience has given him a unique understanding of the issues that can arise in this area, enabling him to provide practical and insightful advice to his clients as to how best to resolve these issues.

Alastair is known for his friendly and approachable manner. His ability to put clients at ease by listening to their concerns and understanding their position before explaining their legal options in simple, jargon-free language is highly valued. He is also sensitive to the impact that a client's personal circumstances and relationships (both with family members and others) can have on the decisions they make with regards to their legal affairs.

Alastair joined Forsters in 2014 and became a partner in 2018. He previously worked at Clifford Chance and Allen & Overy.
