Clarkslegal LLP - Solicitors in Reading and London

Our People

Esma Kilic
Senior Solicitor

I act for clients ranging from start-ups to listed companies, and advise on various commercial and corporate matters.

I have experience in areas including mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, asset sale and purchase agreements, and corporate governance. My work varies from drafting documents to advising shareholders and directors in relation to various areas of corporate and company law.

I am bilingual (English/Turkish) and also speak French, and use my languages in my day-to-day work.

I act on mergers, acquisitions and disposals in a wide range of industries, acting for clients ranging from SMEs to PLCs. I am part of an excellent team and so I am well placed to provide practical, user-friendly advice and see transactions through to the end.

I am regularly instructed to advise on debt finance and related security documentation.

My work involves dealing with independent matters or ones which are a part of a wider corporate transaction. I advise on loan agreements, charges, director/shareholder guarantees and other forms of security, as well as providing advice to clients in accordance with lenders’ requirements.

I draft and provide advice in relation to a wide range of commercial contracts including shareholder agreements, agency agreements, sole supply and service level agreements as well as standard terms of business. I also deal with sector-specific contracts, for example, lease hire contracts for the motor industry.
