Professional Support Lawyer

About Me

As the knowledge lawyer in our Tech Transactions team, I play a key role in keeping both clients and colleagues at the forefront of tech-related legal and market developments.

I monitor key tech-related developments in legal regulation, case law and market trends, particularly in the UK and EU but also internationally, working closely with our Regulatory and Public Affairs team. I help our clients keep up to date on these developments and any consequent practical implications through publications, seminars and tailored training.

I organise internal training for the Tech Transactions team to ensure my colleagues are always at the cutting edge of their field. I also manage our team's internal knowledge-sharing system and I support my colleagues with developing and using legal tech on projects.

Before becoming a knowledge lawyer, I was an associate in Bird & Bird's Commercial practice. I drafted and negotiated commercial contracts for clients in the technology industry including software licensing agreements, IT outsourcing agreements and SAAS agreements.

My special areas of interest include artificial intelligence and legal tech.


  • I read Ancient History at Nottingham University, graduating with a First Class degree before converting to Law.
  • I completed my training contract with Bird & Bird and qualified in 2014.


  • Solicitors Regulation Authority in 2014
