About Dawn

A Partner in our Corporate team, Dawn bridges the gap between the commercial and legal worlds, positioning herself not just as a lawyer but as a strategic advisor as well.  With her focused and unflustered approach to business and her natural ability to quickly process complex information, clients can rely on Dawn for the kind of unfiltered advice they might not otherwise get, even from their own management.


Dawn has considerable knowledge and experience in asset based lending and insolvency and approaches her work from the same commercial standpoint as her clients, frequently highlighting practical implications that go way beyond the legal aspects of the matter.


Dawn has a special interest in refinancing and restructuring matters, advising on a wide range of insolvency related assignments or assisting and advising directors of distressed companies. She is driven by the buzz of seeing an insolvent company rescued and helping all her clients grow and achieve their objectives. 


Dawn is the PDT Money Laundering Reporting Officer, IT Partner and assists on the PDT trainee and work experience scheme developing future lawyers.  


In her spare time Dawn is a member of a local masters swimming squad and likes to spend time with her friends, family and daughter.
