Oliver is a Partner in our Corporate Group and his work focusses on cross border, private equity and venture capital transactions. He acts for a range of investors, sponsors and sponsor backed corporate clients, many of which are located outside of the UK.

Oliver is a member of the Walker Morris International Committee with responsibility for relationships with other international law firms. He is also an active member of the International Bar Association (IBA) and the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG).

Cross Borders

Oliver’s cross border practice regularly involves multiple legal jurisdictions, regulations, market practices and tax regimes. He is well versed in guiding clients through the complexities arising from international transactions, deal structures and project managing teams across multiple time zones.

Oliver describes his working style as undramatic and focussed on problem solving. He describes his fellow Walker Morris lawyers as, “experts in their specialist areas who operate without egos. We always deal with our clients and counterparts in a respectful and fair manner and focus on achieving equitable solutions to our transactions”.

Law Firms are People

Oliver is part of Walker Morris’ innovation committee which explores ways in which law firms can evolve their businesses to become more efficient, increase diversity and think differently. “Innovation is an integral part of shaping the future working environment of a law firm. But ultimately, law firms are made up of people – their ideas and their client relationships. I believe people thrive when they are treated as individuals and allowed to work together to reach common goals, while at the same time being allowed independence to contribute to a business in their own way”.
