EMW has two other offices, one based in Milton Keynes and the other in London on Chancery Lane. The opening of the new office in Crawley represents the next stage of EMW's strategic growth and signals their commitment to building a strong presence in the area, as they expand their geographical reach to the south of London.
The office will be headed up by Sarah Naylor, Frank Bouette and Gurpreet Sanghera.
Sarah Naylor advises institutional lenders on acquisition finance, property & development finance, mortgage regulation and general lending. She also advises fund managers on the establishment, structuring and operation of funds. Sarah is one of the UK's leading advisers to lenders on mortgage and savings products documentation and related regulatory issues.
Frank Bouette is a restructuring lawyer, specialising in guiding entrepreneurs through financially challenging situations for their businesses. Frank also acts on complex offshore and onshore transactions relating to the dissolution and realisation of assets.
Gurpreet is a Corporate Finance lawyer that has advised on a wide range of domestic and international acquisitions, disposals and mergers, private equity backed management buy-outs and buy ins, corporate restructuring, debt and equity fund raising and corporate bond raises. Gurpreet will be focusing on building local networks and forging strong business relationships with large corporates, owner-managed SMEs and entrepreneurs.
EMW's ethos is to spend time with businesses and help shape their strategic plans.
Ian Morris, Chairman, comments, "We're enormously excited to be entering the next stage of our development by opening in Gatwick. As we enter this next stage of our growth plans, extending our coverage across the south of London, having seasoned experts on the ground will enable us to rapidly cement a strong position in this area. Many businesses to the south of London increasingly feel they have to look to London firms for top quality legal advice, but we want to demonstrate that this is not the case."
