I am an associate in our Dispute Resolution team in London, advising our clients on contentious matters, often with a cross-border element, across a number of key sectors including life sciences and energy & utilities.
I have been involved in a wide range of High Court litigation, damages enquiries and appeals to the Court of Appeal. I have also been involved in a number of arbitrations (ICC, LCIA and ad-hoc), many of which involved legal issues arising out of complex technical contracts. I have experience of a wide range of interim relief applications including disclosure applications (including Norwich Pharmacal applications and Letters of Request), injunctions and anti-suit injunctions as well as the enforcement of English and foreign judgments and arbitral awards (including challenges thereof). I also regularly advise clients on allegations involving breaches of fiduciary duties, unlawful means conspiracy, allegations of bad faith, conspiracy to defraud and breaches of trust. Furthermore, I have assisted with regulatory enquiries (ICAEW, FRC, TDB and the Charity Commission) and general dispute resolution/avoidance work.
As an engineer, I take a particular interest in complex disputes in life sciences and those that require a deep technical understanding and industry knowledge. Before joining the team at Bird & Bird, I studied at a Higher Technical School for Industrial Engineering in Vienna, Austria. Later, I trained with Bird & Bird and was seconded to our Brussels Competition team before qualifying in 2014.
