About Me

I work as an associate in the Sports Group, based in London and specialising in a wide range of commercial and contractual issues. While I primarily focus on the sport sector, I also have considerable experience advising clients in the media and tech sectors spanning five years at my previous firm, one of the largest international law firms in the world.

In particular, I advise on media rights tenders and agreements, media regulation, sponsorship agreements, service agreements, licensing and merchandising deals, joint venture arrangements and a wide array of contractual and commercial issues generally. My experience covers football, rugby, cricket, motor racing, athletics and esports, and I have represented clubs, governing bodies, leagues, athletes, agents, rightsholders and brands.

During my legal training contract, I spent six months in the distribution arm of ITV, the UK's largest commercial broadcaster, which helped to cement my understanding of the media sector. I also undertook a remote secondment with the stand-alone media platform owned and operated by a prominent global sporting body.

In addition, I worked in the Barcelona office of my previous firm for three months, developing relations with several Spanish clients and the national media regulator. I also speak French and Spanish as a result of my time living and working in France, Canada (Montreal), Spain and Nicaragua.
