Tessa is a corporate and business lawyer based in our London office.
After qualifying at Rosenblatt, where she was a partner, head of the corporate team, and founder of the firm’s Japan Desk and renewable energy practice, Tessa left to set up her own practice, Newlawslegal.
In 2018, Newlawslegal merged with Acuity Law, bringing Tessa’s more than twenty years’ of City legal experience, working on flotations, investments and mergers in London, the UK and internationally to the firm.
At Acuity, Tessa provides hands-on commercial advice and guidance to a wide range of clients, from individuals to institutions. Her recent work has focused primarily on the marketing, media and renewable energy sectors, where she advises management teams on share sales and acquisitions, investment vehicles on their investments and individuals on their business structures.
She particularly enjoys advising management teams in the media arena, be that content creation, TV production, advertising or public relations, on receiving external investment and ultimate exit.
She has completed multiple deals within the sub-£20 million agency space and enjoys working for buyer or seller. This year, Tessa has led several successful and high-profile deals including the acquisition of Karian and Box by Ipsos.
She has served on several AIM-listed company boards and was previously a member of the Quoted Companies Alliance.
