I am a Legal Director in our Competition & EU Law team in London with over 18 years' experience at the cutting edge of UK and EU competition law and policy having worked at regulators, competition authorities, in academia and private practice, with a particular focus on regulated sectors such as payment systems as well as sport, retail, consumer, financial, technology and communications markets more widely.I have particular expertise as a competition enforcement specialist having joined Bird & Bird from the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) where I was a senior lawyer leading the PSR's first competition cartel investigation in the payments space. I also worked for several years at the Competition and Markets Authority, where I was the legal adviser on a broad range of complex and high-profile antitrust investigations and mergers (both at Phase 1 and 2). I also represented the UK's interests internationally at the OECD Competition Committee. This experience has given me valuable insight into antitrust enforcement, policy and regulatory practices, which means I am extremely well-placed to advise clients on every aspect of competition investigations from inception to closure, including complaints, cartel leniency applications, dawn raids, requests for information, evidence gathering, interviews, settlement as well as merger filings, sector enquiries, market studies and competition compliance more generally.
