Career

I am a commercial lawyer who works closely with in-house lawyers, procurement/sales teams and management to facilitate commercial deals with the minimum of fuss.

I negotiate and draft contracts in areas such as supply chain, procurement, facilities management, intellectual property exploitation, concessions, property management, outsourcing, logistics, manufacturing, supply of goods and services, international trade, consumer and travel law.

My advice is concise, contains no legal jargon and relevant to the commercial context.

I can support clients to implement the use of technology and processes to create business efficiencies and reduce legal spend.

Ben CookeDWF

Under the guidance of Ben Cooke, the commercial offering at DWF continues to act for a notable portfolio of blue chip clients, with a focus on those in the retail sector. On the corporate side, Liz Clark takes the lead and is noted particularly for her M&A expertise. In October 2021, senior associate Christine Williams joined the team from Clyde & Co, bringing with her considerable in-house experience from her time as head of legal at Liverpool Airport. Seasoned practitioner Paul Rimmer is also recommended.
