Our People

Ian McDonald

Senior Associate

Ian McDonald

I advise on all aspects of corporate law including mergers and acquisitions, shareholders’ agreements and investments. I have particular experience of helping entrepreneurs and SMEs raise money to grow their businesses. This could be through a private subscription for shares by a high net worth individual, an IPO on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange or the issue of debt to retail investors.

I spent the first 12 years of my career at a City law firm. There I worked with clients in a wide range of sectors including dental care, mining and natural resources and financial services. Most of my clients are entrepreneurs who want straightforward and pragmatic legal advice to help them achieve their commercial objectives. Over the years I have learnt that what people really appreciate is knowing that they can always pick up the phone to talk things through.

Away from the office, I enjoy pottering around my allotment with my two small children.
