Tracey’s Biography

I am a business lawyer admitted to practice in both California and Scotland and have over 25 years of experience as a corporate and business lawyer in both the UK and the US. I have recently returned to the UK after practising law in the US for 12 years, including latterly as a partner in an AmLaw 100 firm. Prior to that, I practised in Scotland and London at a senior level in both private practice and in merchant banking. I specialize in business, corporate and finance matters. I bring a valuable perspective to cross-border transactions and advising clients as they expand overseas and regularly guides businesses entering new territories, as I am well-versed in advising on the corporate and regulatory environment in both places. My firm, MBM Commercial, is an award-winning commercial law firm that helps entrepreneurial businesses. Many of our clients are businesses based throughout the UK, which are going through significant growth, either by investment, acquisition or by international expansion. We also offer US law capability to assist clients who are doing deals in the US, expanding into US markets or transacting with US businesses. We are the market leaders for advising on early stage investment deals.
