About Me

I am a Senior Associate in our Sports Group in London. I act primarily for national and international sports governing bodies, federations and sporting organisations in contentious and regulatory matters across a range of sports including motorsport, tennis, equestrianism, cricket, rugby and football.

In particular, my practice involves representing clients in relation to a wide range of issues such as challenges to regulatory decisions, disciplinary disputes (including misconduct and anti-doping cases), safeguarding matters, rule drafting and advisory work and broader commercial disputes. I have experience acting for clients in a range of dispute resolution forums including the Court of Arbitration for Sport, a number of different international arbitration institutions, internal appeal tribunals, as well as the English, DIFC and ADGM courts.

My passion for sport stems from my own sporting background in tennis, where I competed as a junior on the international tour and represented Great Britain at under 18 level, which has provided me with a valuable insight into the sports industry and the issues faced by governing bodies, athletes and clubs. I am also a passionate diversity and inclusion advocate, particularly on the subject of social mobility, and am proud to Chair the Bird & Bird social mobility network, Beyond Backgrounds.
