He also advises on commercial contracts and corporate law including business structures, relationships between proprietors, succession planning as well as sales and acquisitions.

Neil has worked in compliance, co-authored a book for independent film producers and has experience in resolving disputes through mediation and litigation.  This has been put to good use assisting clients to prevent disputes through effective contracts and negotiation.

Neil states “I have been part of the business community in Frome for three decades.  It has always been an entrepreneurial town, but I am constantly surprised and encouraged to discover people doing innovative things in new ways.  It is so encouraging to see so many people bringing their skill and enthusiasm to Somerset, and in many cases back to their home town.  I really enjoy helping them achieve their goals.  Lawyers should make things happen, not get in the way”.
