Beth joined asb law in 2020 and is an Associate within the Corporate Finance team.
Beth offers legal advice on a range of corporate finance matters including mergers and acquisitions, company restructuring, joint ventures, share option schemes and corporate lending.
She works with owners and management teams of businesses in a variety of sectors and of all sizes, from large market leaders, to smaller owner-managed business.
Before joining asb law Beth was with Maidstone-based firm Outset as a Corporate lawyer where she acted as lead on over 40 acquisitions for a large-scale veterinary services provider. She also acted on acquisitions, management buyouts, joint venture arrangements, corporate restructurings and share option schemes for clients from a multitude of sectors.
Before this, she trained and practised at Herbert Smith Freehills in the City where she acted for clients in a number of industry sectors including consumer goods, banking and private equity. Work here included both public listed company and private company matters. She also undertook secondments in both the Company Secretarial and Mergers & Acquisitions teams at British American Tobacco Plc.
Beth gets her drive from the challenge of getting deals over the line successfully within tight timeframes. Clients have described her as commercial and pragmatic in approach.
One of Beth’s recent work highlights was advising a large veterinary services provider on the acquisition of a pet crematorium and waste disposal business. This was a strategic deal as these business needs had previously been outsourced. The acquisition was new ground for the client and thus raised unfamiliar due diligence issues as well as consideration of how the new business would be integrated and managed after completion.
Away from the office Beth enjoys drawing and gardening in her free time.
