I am a Dispute Resolution associate based in our Dubai office, where I specialise in the commercial, tech & comms, and media, entertainment and sports sectors.
Working out of London, Dubai and Berlin, I have advised clients on contentious, regulatory and investigations matters throughout the EMEA region. I have acted for a leading art broker in High Court proceedings concerning the authenticity of a 16th Century painting and defended a major international supermarket retailer against multi-billion-pound equal pay claims in the Employment Tribunal, High Court and Court of Appeal. I have assisted a US-headquartered genetic research company obtain regulatory approval for its cancer detection tests in the European Union and carried out fraud, bribery and sanctions investigations for major financial and insurance firms.
I am also passionate about pro bono work and have represented a charitable foundation to procure the release of a high-profile Briton imprisoned abroad for the past four years, including in its interactions with British politicians, cabinet members, civil servants, and journalists. I have also advised clients in domestic violence and housing clinics across London.
In addition to being a qualified solicitor in England and Wales, I am also a member of the Irish Law Society and am admitted to practise in the United Arab Emirates, which allows me to advise on matters of UAE law.
