I advise clients on a range of matters in the sector, with a particular focus on businesses impacted by technology or those commercialising intellectual property assets.I act for and against rights holders licensing content internationally, negotiate the terms and conditions of service for technology rich platforms and advise on a range of broadcast regulatory matters. In recent years, I've also gained valuable experience acting on the sale of stakes in a football club and an international sports channel. Whether advising on a specific commercial transaction or a larger transformational project, I work closely with clients to understand their businesses and provide commercial legal advice to meet their objectives. Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked in the regulatory and competition team at a major television platform, broadcaster and distributor in the UK, in the legal team at a commercial television network in Australia and in the central legal function at a global PR, advertising and marketing group. While at Bird & Bird, I've also spent time on secondment at a company specialising in energy investment. As a result of this varied experience, I've learned the value of clients receiving practical, commercial legal advice and developed a working understanding of a range of businesses in the media, entertainment and sports sector.
