Julie Hughes


I am the head of our corporate team.  I advise privately owned businesses, high net worth individuals and entrepreneurs, as well as corporate (including international) groups, on all aspects of corporate law, with a focus on corporate transactions. 


Specialising in M&A transactions, I’m committed to guiding clients through all aspects of the process, making it as stress free (and as even enjoyable) as possible. My team and I have been praised for our “total professionalism and calming influence”.


I have particular expertise in the education sector, having recently advised on a number of nursery sales and purchases. 


I’m also an experienced banking and finance lawyer acting for both borrowers and lenders on a range of secured lending transactions, including with our real estate finance team.


A client once said after having completed several crucial transactions for them: “Julie was fantastic – as always”
