I advise on a variety of corporate matters including M&A for private companies, corporate advisory, corporate real estate, joint ventures and private equity venture capital.


I recently joined Fladgate as an associate in the corporate team having worked for another London firm after qualifying in 2016.

My experience includes advising owner managed businesses, entrepreneurs, limited liability partnerships and private companies in a broad range of sectors including hospitality, energy, automotive, real estate and technology.

I like to think outside the box and find effective solutions to challenging problems whilst working collaboratively with clients along the way.

When I am not working, you will most likely find me outside come rain or shine! I am a keen horse rider spending most of my weekends driving around the country competing in both dressage and eventing.
