I am an associate in our international Corporate Group here in London since 2017, I advise our clients on matters including venture capital, private M&A, corporate restructures and private equity.

My primary focus is venture capital investments, whilst also having significant experience in private M&A deals, corporate reorganisations and general corporate advisory work.

I particularly enjoy working on early-stage investments, on both the investor and company side, as it allows you to build relationships with some of the most exciting businesses that are disrupting traditional sectors through innovative developments in technology. As such, you are able to work with companies at all stages of their life-cycle, from incorporation and taking on investment for the first time, on to alphabet rounds and all the way through to an exit.

Whilst being involved with early-stage and high-growth companies allows me to be involved in a wide range of industries, I have a specific interest in the following sectors: media, entertainment and sports; life sciences; and technology and communications.

All these areas are rapidly changing both by innovation and changes in the regulatory landscape (in the UK, the EU and globally). I have most recently been involved in a number of investments relating to cannabis and/or cannabidiol and I am part of the team here that is at the forefront of legal thought with regards to regulation in the industry.
