Dan is a Partner and Member at Lupton Fawcett. He trained and qualified in the Leeds office of an international law firm, having resisted temptation to return to his native Lancashire.
Dan joined the Corporate Finance Department in 2007. He specialises in all types of mergers and acquisitions and management buy-outs. He also has extensive experience of a wide variety of group re-organisations, joint ventures and shareholders’ agreements. Dan also has experience acting for both borrowers and lenders in relation to all types of financing, including acquisition finance, invoice discounting, re-financing and mis-selling of interest rate hedging products.
Clients cover a broad spectrum of sectors including catering, garden centres, hotels, events management, design agencies, children’s nurseries and motor dealerships.
Dan is married to Claire, and dad to Alice and Olivia. He recently hung up his boots at the end of a long (and mildly illustrious) career playing both rugby league and rugby union, most recently for Sandal RUFC. He is a member of Wakefield Golf Club and fan of all sports, but spends most of his time ferrying his daughters to and from ballet, musical theatre, gymnastics and swimming lessons.
