About Me

I work as a senior associate in our Sports Group in London, where, as a former athlete, I have real insight into the sports industry and the issues faced by governing bodies, athletes and clubs.

I am experienced in advising on sports-related commercial issues and have acted for governing bodies, event organisers, clubs and commercial sponsors across a range of sports including football, rugby union, motorsport and athletics. I have also been involved in the drafting of sporting rules and regulations as well as advising on a number of advertising and promotional marketing matters.

I am hugely passionate about women's sport and co-lead our Women's Sport practice supporting the growth of women's sport and helping clients to invest in, deliver, commercialise and regulate women's sport.

As part of my training contract, I spent time on secondment with a national sports governing body. Whilst on secondment I assisted with various commercial and regulatory matters and was able to develop my industry experience and gain real commercial insight.

Prior to joining Bird & Bird LLP I was a professional hockey player winning a bronze medal with the GB women's hockey team at the London 2012 Olympic Games and a gold medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. I am also currently a member of the British Olympic Association's Athletes' Commission and the European Hockey's Athletes' Commission
