Partner - Healthcare
Michael joined Cavendish in January 2006 and has advised on many successful sale mandates across a range of sectors with a particular focus on business services and healthcare.
Michael’s transaction experience includes arranging sales to some of the largest global corporates such as the sale of Polar Speed Thermologistics to UPS and the sale of Finsbury Orthopaedics to Johnson and Johnson, as well to private equity purchasers such as the sale of Angel Springs to LDC.
Michael’s investment banking career commenced in 1997 when he joined the corporate finance department of UBS Warburg. During his time there, Michael worked on the execution of a wide range of transactions including trade sales, IPOs, acquisitions and restructurings.
His clients included UK and international companies operating in a range of sectors, in particular the oil and gas industries, including advising the Norwegian State on the restructuring of its directly held oil and gas assets and the IPO of Statoil, Petroleum Geoservices on its financial restructuring and Group GTM on the sale of ETPM to Stolt Comex Seaway.
Prior to Cavendish, Michael spent 18 months at Monitor, the independent regulator of foundation trust hospitals, where he assessed and monitored the financial performance and business plans of some of the largest hospitals in the UK, ultimately leading to their authorisation as Foundation Trusts.
Michael graduated from Oxford University in 1997 with a Mathematics degree.
