Liam is Head of our Company Secretarial unit and has significant experience in the areas of company secretarial, compliance, corporate governance, anti-money laundering and advising directors on their statutory duties and obligations.

He also provides support to boards of directors of regulated and non-regulated entities, public and private companies and government agencies on corporate governance best practice relating to corporate governance codes and administers board and shareholder meetings.

Clients with whom he engages will be provided with comprehensive consultation and quick and efficient solutions to any issues or complications as they may arise.
