Find out more about Toby Preston, Solicitor and Corporate Law specialist, based at our head office in Leicester city centre.
Q: How long have you been working in Corporate Law?
A: Since I qualified in 2004.
Q: What made you want to get into Corporate Law?
A: I just preferred it to other areas. Throughout my studies and training I always liked the business side and found it easy to get to grips with. It’s nice to work with companies and businesses that are successful and going somewhere and I get to be involved in making that happen.
Q: What is the most challenging type of case you have handled?
A: There are too many to mention, but some particularly tricky ones included; firstly a multi-jurisdictional acquisition, involving 18 sets of lawyers. A second example would be getting rid of a rogue shareholder in a situation where the parties no longer wished to work together.
Q: What types of cases do you have most experience in?
A: Acquisitions, disposals and shareholder arrangements.
Q: Why do you think so many people come to Bray & Bray for these types of matters?
A: Because of the reputation we have for giving a great service with excellent, quality advice. We’re good at being able to relate to the people that we work with and find that nearly always we become more of a trusted advisor, developing ongoing relationships with our clients.
Q: What do you do to unwind after a busy day?
A: Spend time with my wife and kids, go for a run, cook a meal or sample the delights of my local pub.
Q: What is the key to your success?
A: Keeping clients happy and being positive generally.
Q: If you weren’t a solicitor, what do you think you would be good at?
A: I nearly became a pilot when I was younger. Now, I’d probably like to run my own business.
