About Me

I am a Dispute Resolution associate based in Bird & Bird's Dubai office. I advise clients in local and international disputes, under UAE laws and the laws of England and Wales.

I have been involved in a broad range of complex matters, both contentious and non-contentious, including breach of contract claims, shareholder disputes, cost claims, commercial disputes, and contract drafting and reviewing.

I have considerable experience in advising on a wide range of international and domestic litigation and arbitration cases, as well as alternative dispute resolution mechanisms across a variety of industry sectors and involving numerous differing issues. We assist clients at all stages of dispute, from inception right through to arbitration or court and then enforcement.
