Roberta Draper

Senior Associate

Corporate and Commercial | Startup Investments

Our overall experience of Kingsley Napley was excellent. As founders, we have always felt KN were on our side. Roberta was extremely thorough in her approach to our somewhat complex investment round, which involved several parties; anticipating potential pitfalls before we did; working up creative solutions to last-minute drafting issues; and succeeding in making a tiresome process a lot less dull than it could have been.
