Tim Watts


Professional Admissions / Qualifications

  • England and Wales

Tim has specialised in corporate work for approaching 35 years at Richards Butler, nearly 18 of which were as a partner. He has wide experience both in advising on corporate, regulatory and compliance issues for public and private companies and in all types of transactions. Tim now continues with the firm as a consultant, working in a variety of sectors but much of his time is involved in internal matters of Reed Smith.

In 2006 Tim has concentrated on two internal, but notable, projects for Richards Butler. Tim led the work on Richards Butler’s conversion from a partnership to a limited liability partnership. The international nature of Richards Butler’s business added much complexity to the process. He was also heavily involved in the merger with Reed Smith, taking the lead for Richards Butler LLP on the drafting and negotiation of the various, and complex, agreements necessary to effect the merger.
