Tim Cunningham joins Whitby Wood

Tim is a qualified solicitor. His professional capabilities encompass the provision of advice from legal and commercial perspectives, the negotiation of consultancy agreements for high-value complex projects, management of legal risks, acquisitions and mergers, and compliance and regulatory advice.

He also manages the practice’s insurance portfolio, provides advice on data protection and develops training programmes for the UK and Middle East on legal and commercial matters.

He is keenly interested in football, swimming and hiking … and cycling, of course — almost a prerequisite at Whitby Wood!

A very warm welcome, Tim.
