Sophie is a corporate partner and advisor to private capital clients across the entirety of the fund life cycle, specialising in special situations, portfolio investments, complex cross-border structuring, investment funds, governance and mentoring. She has a particular focus on U.S.-based investors, primarily those who are seeking to grow outside of the U.S.

Sophie is often engaged by private capital investors on ‘first of their kind’ investments in a diverse range of sectors and geographies and/or where the investors have hit a roadblock and are in need of a quarterback. Sophie analyses and finds solutions to the obstacles, putting in place innovative and complex group structures and tailor-made governance and finance arrangements that are bespoke for the investor group in question and which are forward-looking and give the investors maximum flexibility on multi-billion dollar investments.  Particular strengths of Sophie are her knowledge and understanding of fund structures, operations and preferred jurisdictions plus the types of tax and regulatory matters that are typically relevant to funds.

Thereafter, she is retained by the investors and the portfolio companies to advise them in a quasi-general counsel capacity and oversee multi-disciplined and multi-jurisdictional teams throughout the life cycle of the investment to exit (e.g. by way of private mergers and acquisitions (M&A) sale, initial public offering (IPO) and liquidation).

She also has extensive financial restructuring experience, having acted on many substantive and high-profile financial restructurings and distressed investments and acquisitions and divestments.

Sophie is recognized as a rising star for corporate finance and M&A by Super Lawyer.
