Spencer is a Solicitor, qualified in 2003, specialising in Company and Commercial law.
His primary business goal is to protect his client's business interests. He is not a litigator, and he does not, therefore, spend his time arguing whether a contract exists and what the terms say. He is a legal draftsman and a negotiator. He believes prevention is better than cure, and so his entire focus is upfront risk management. He spends his time making sure there is a binding contract in place, the terms accurately record the deal and are stated in the most favourable and watertight manner.
