My expertise spans commercial negotiations, private share and asset sales and acquisitions, private equity transactions, public mergers & acquisitions, debt and equity funding and capital markets transactions, and advising on corporate and governance issues.

The result is a holistic cyber security solution, aimed particularly at corporations.
