I am an associate in our Sports Group in London, where I advise our sports clients on a wide range of contentious, regulatory and disciplinary matters.
I act for governing bodies, federations, event organisers, clubs and athletes across a variety of sports, including football, tennis, cricket and athletics. I have also advised charities and shareholders in the sports industry.
As well as advising clients, I have experience appearing for them before internal disciplinary tribunals, and was recently appointed as an independent disciplinary commissioner for the Football Association, determining misconduct issues at a county level.
Outside of the sporting world, I have advised blue-chip corporates, technology companies and financial institutions on a range of commercial disputes before the English courts and international arbitral bodies. I have also spent periods on secondment to the arbitration team of a multinational airspace manufacturer and the strategic litigation team of a human rights organisation.
I combine my broad disputes experience with sector-specific knowledge to offer a well-rounded and holistic approach to solving problems for our sports clients.
