THE GAME, SET AND MATCH NEGOTIATOR. 

Ron’s clients value his passion for business. He anticipates risks and opportunities and simplifies complex legal issues to provide tailored strategic advice. Whilst he appreciates the global view, he is right at home when collar deep in details, negotiations and project management work.

Ron works with large, privately-owned businesses, SMEs, high-net worth individuals and start-ups. He specialises in commercial law, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, joint venture and shareholders’ agreements, and corporate restructurings. He also advises on property, trust and estate planning matters.

On the inside, he’s the go-to for commercial triage.

On the outside, he enjoys travel and sports, but only if it includes cricket, soccer or tennis.
