I specialise in intellectual property, commercial contracts, sports and technology matters and regularly advise on the intellectual property and commercial aspects of corporate transactions.

I joined Fladgate’s Commercial, Sports and Intellectual Property team in July 2022, having qualified as a solicitor in March 2020 (directly into the Covid-19 pandemic!). Prior to qualifying I was lucky to spend some time working in-house in the legal team of a large consumer goods and retail client, and was also extremely fortunate to spend some time working in Dubai just before the pandemic hit.

My practice covers a wide array of advisory and transactional intellectual property and commercial matters, with experience acting for clients across a range of industries including sports, consumer goods and retail, technology, digital media, healthcare and fashion and beauty. I also have extensive experience advising on the intellectual property and commercial aspects of large corporate transactions, often with international cross-border elements. I have a particular interest in the sports industry and feel very fortunate to be working in an area of law that I am genuinely passionate about.

When I’m not working you can usually find me playing or watching (nowadays more likely to be watching) some form of sport, most commonly cricket, football, golf, hockey or rugby. I am also an unashamed books, film and TV nerd, so am always open to recommendations!
