Gerrard joined Meridian in September 2017 on a six month secondment from top 150 regional law firm, Trethowans LLP.
Gerrard spent 18 months in the Banking team at Trethowans and is continuing to apply and develop this knowledge at Meridian.
Gerrard's legal background allows him to add value on the banking and corporate aspects of documenting the intentions of the parties as well as legal due diligence in the early stages of deals.
His specialist areas include:
Short form commercial facility agreements;
Security documentation and structures;
Perfection of security;
Deeds of inter-creditor/subordination/priority; and
Negotiation and management of conditions precedent/subsequent.
At Meridian, I provide management and business development support to an award-winning team. I work closely with entrepreneurs, start-ups and SME companies looking to realise wealth and structure transitional arrangements.
Outside of work I am an Officer in the Army Reserve (6th Battalion - the RIFLES).
