Introducing Chris Boakes

05 March 2009

I joined the firm in 2008 and cover corporate and commercial agreements, mergers and acquisitions, commercial property transactions, joint ventures and general corporate advice.

I regularly advise a diverse client group regarding their business and commercial affairs.

I’ve spoken at a number of seminars and contributed to regular business updates for clients. I qualified in 2006 and have worked with a focus on transactional and business transfers involving companies with significant property assets.

Prior to commencing on a legal career I worked in the music industry for Skint Records/Sony Independent Networks for 5 years and at the Citizens Advice Bureau.
