I joined Bird & Bird in 2015 from the Competition and Markets Authority, where I worked as a case officer on a number of high profile investigations. Since joining the team, I have attended dawn raids by the CMA and the European Commission advising on privilege, compliance and seize and sift issues in real time. My background on the enforcement side comes very useful when advising clients subject to competition investigations. I regularly provide strategic advice to clients including on the structure of their distribution arrangements ensuring compliance with the vertical agreement and technology transfer block exemption regulations. I also advise clients on UK and international merger control. In the last year, I have expended my expertise to contentious matters by acting for a claimant in a follow on cartel damages claim in the High Court.
