With over two decades working in the international media, entertainment and sport sector, I'm an enthusiastic collaborator with a wide array of clients on transactions, projects and transformations, often involving technologically-driven change and opportunity.
I've first-hand experience of being client-side as the general counsel and head of corporate development of a FTSE-listed international digital media company. I now work with organisations across commercial, corporate, regulatory and transactional matters.
Clients turn to me not just for technical advice, but informed, thoughtful insight on business and strategic issues. I'm laser-focused on understanding why clients are doing things and ensuring our work is precisely-tuned to helping them achieve their objectives. In every interaction with a client my primary job is to help them answer the simple question: what should I do next?
I'm particularly experienced in assisting entrepreneurial, high-growth, internationalising businesses with commercial partnerships and joint ventures, M&A, change, new markets and models for products and services. A significant part of my work involves emerging technologies.
Over two decades I've advised multinational media organisations to kitchen-table start-ups spanning content creators, broadcasters, OTT platforms, distributors, technology innovators, football clubs, sports and entertainment rights owners and news organisations. Today, brands from well beyond the core media industry turn to me for assistance navigating the use media and technology to engage with consumers.
