"I focus on providing clients with practical legal advice that takes into account commercial, financial and legal considerations: finding solutions and getting the deal done."

Geri’s background in corporate finance and commercial law assists her to provide her clients with legal advice grounded in the financial, commercial and legal considerations that drive transaction decisions.

Geri’s practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), corporate advisory and capital raisings. She assists clients at all stages of their business, from initial capital raising through contract negotiations, business restructuring, expansion and sale. Whilst Geri’s work is largely industry agnostic, she has a particular interest and network in the non-bank lending and fintech sectors.

Geri’s ability to understand the financial, commercial and legal issues at stake, is highly valued by her clients. Clients trust her guidance and appreciate her ability to act as a sounding board and help them find solutions to take their business to the next stage.
