About Me

I am a Senior Associate in our Media, Entertainment and Sport Group in London.

My sports practice focusses on advising clients on commercial matters, including in relation to sponsorship, media rights, licensing and merchandising, transfers, event organisation and data exploitation. I have experience advising across a wide range of sports, including football, rugby, tennis, cricket, motorsport, golf, basketball and horse racing.

My other separate area of focus is the cross-over between technology and media. I have written and contributed extensively in the media on a variety of issues across this space, with a main focus on misinformation matters, and have experience advising major social media companies in relation to online regulatory matters.

Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I was a Senior Associate and Co-Lead of the UK Sports practice at a global law firm.
