About Nicola

Nicola specialises in corporate law with a focus on transactional work including acquisitions and disposals (both share and asset related) and investor fundraisings. She also advises on a wide variety of corporate restructuring matters including capital reductions, share repurchases, demergers and hive-ups and has acted on some complex transactions often involving cross border aspects.

Aside from transactions, Nicola also handles general corporate governance matters such as shareholder agreements, share schemes, directors’ duties, board procedures and company secretarial issues.

Recent transactions include:

Acting for Quixant plc on its £8M public takeover of Densitron Technologies Limited effected by way of a court sanctioned scheme of arrangement.

Acting for Gama Aviation plc on its acquisition of Aerstream Limited and Flyertech Limited.
Acting for a Dutch company in relation to its £8M acquisition of a Yorkshire based valve repair and maintenance company.

Acting for ECSC plc, a leading cyber security company, in relation to its admission and placing on AIM and advising on a post admission restructure of its group of companies.

Career

Prior to joining Moorcrofts, Nicola spent five years working as an in-house lawyer in the aviation and property sectors (the majority of that time in Spain) and three years as part of the corporate team at Freeths LLP in their London office. She prides herself on delivering commercially astute advice to clients having the benefit of her in-house experience (and even sometimes in her best Spanish!).
