Tim is a Partner of Hassans (since 2014) and specialises in international, cross-border, corporate, commercial and tax work. The portfolio of clients he services are primarily ‘blue-chip’ multinationals, major private equity houses, and substantial family offices.
The depth and breadth of his experience sees him applying his cross-border expertise to corporate governance matters, structuring servicing and divestment of high value private equity investments, re-domiciliations and cross-border mergers, mergers and acquisitions, financing, re-financing and re-structuring transactions [including in Chapter 11 scenarios], liquidations and broader insolvency aspects, as well as a whole range of general commercial transactions.
Tim is also a trusted non-executive director for many of his clients, as well as an author of Gibraltar chapters in international legal directory guides.
Tim is a University of Nottingham graduate (which included an Erasmus year studying Spanish Law at the Universitat de Valencia in Spain) and endeavours to balance his workload with his young family and his various musical and sporting interests (having represented Gibraltar internationally in both musical and sporting arenas).
Tim completed his Bar Vocational Course at the Inns of Courts School of Law in London. A member of the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple and inaugural Chairman of the Gibraltar Law Students Association, Tim was called to the Bar in England & Wales and Gibraltar in 2006.
Some of Tim’s recent work highlights include his role as lead Gibraltar adviser in:
(i) a technical and urgent restructuring (including the navigation through certain related securitisation aspects) of the equivalent of circa USD 1.1 billion (in aggregate) secured deposits held by Gibraltar entities forming part of the group of companies of a leading, international financial institution;
(ii) the repatriation (in the midst of Covid-19 lockdown) of circa EUR 1.3 billion of assets out of a Gibraltar holding company forming part of a listed, leading international packaging company, including in the provision of various practical and innovative alternatives to allow for the same;
(iii) a complex (in lieu of challenges to ultimately reconcile differences between our respective common law and civil law systems) re-domiciliation by way of continuation into Switzerland of a hitherto Gibraltar vehicle (with a net value of circa USD 300 million) within a leading, international medical device company.
