I am a Legal Director in Bird & Bird's Commercial Department and enjoy supporting clients on the global challenges facing the digital and communications sector as well as other regulated industries building on my significant telecommunications and competition law experience.
I have expertise across the full spectrum of regulatory, competition, telecommunications and compliance matters encountered by businesses operating in and around the digital, tech and media space. I have spent time in-house at one of the world's most prominent tech companies and bring expertise, insight and a highly commercial understanding of client requirements and deliver business focused advice.
Earlier in my career, I worked at a leading communications regulator which afforded me a valuable insight into the regulatory process as well as a solid foundation in UK and EU telco regulation. I am well placed to advise on compliance, market studies, mergers, sector inquiries as well as the fast-changing regulatory landscape. I also have extensive regulatory litigation experience having worked on appeals before the Competition Appeal Tribunal as well as disputes.
I have a keen interest in evolving international OTT and Platform regulation as regulators seek to keep pace with the constant innovation in the dynamic tech sector and the challenges of the Data economy. I enjoy the constant intellectual challenge this provides, advising clients on the application of current and future laws to emerging technologies and helping them to deliver their strategic priorities.
