Sharon is the founder of the BeesMont Group and CEO of BeesMont Law Limited. She practices in all areas of corporate and commercial law with particular expertise in investment funds, structured finance, joint venture structures and mergers and acquisitions.

Prior to establishing the BeesMont Group, Sharon spent the first eight years of her professional practice with Linklaters (in London & Hong Kong) where she worked primarily in the fields of commercial property, banking and capital market and banking transactions; after a sabbatical involving cycling from England to the Near East, she worked with Denys Reitz in South Africa, advising on corporate cross-border transactions. Sharon then moved to Bermuda where she was the head of banking at one of the then leading Bermuda law firms. In 1997 she co-founded the original ISIS Group which included the ISIS Foundation now known as Adara Foundation, an international non-profit, which seeks to improve the lives of children and their families in Nepal and Uganda. Sharon was also one of the founders of IKONIC Fund Services Ltd., a licensed Bermuda fund administrator, now owned by the Artex Group.

Since 1992, when Sharon commenced her law practice in Bermuda, she has developed a recognised investment fund practice, particularly with respect to infrastructure and alternative fund strategies. She has also advised on a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions including domestic and international M&A and joint ventures, general corporate governance issues and more recently digital asset business.
