Ania Vernon, Associate, Corporate
I am an associate in the firm’s corporate group and assist with general M&A and disposals (particularly, but not exclusively, in the healthcare and professional services sectors), PE investments, re-organisations and corporate finance/banking transactions, as well as JVs, shareholders' agreements and corporate governance matters. In addition I am closely involved in much of the corporate transactional activity of a high-end private care provider with an extensive national care and retirement home portfolio, with whose recent £33-million refinancing of certain assets and activities I assisted.
I was described in the Legal 500 in 2015 as a “very thorough and articulate lawyer who goes the extra mile”, and I also speak Polish and Russian.
Most of my time outside the office finds itself consumed by (relentless) home improvement projects, but I do like to spend any spare time indulging a creative streak, which might involve upcycling an unloved chair or (with varying levels of success) concocting an exotic new recipe.
