About Me

I am a senior associate in our International Corporate Group based in London with experience in a range of cross-border and UK based M&A transactions, VC investments, private equity and corporate reorganisations.

I act for both early and late stage companies in intellectual property rich sectors and for those who invest in them, including for VC funds, corporate or individual investors.

I have a passion for disruptive technologies, innovation and entrepreneurial business with a particular focus on the life sciences and healthcare, technology, media and telecoms, defence and energy sectors. Bird & Bird's wealth of experience advising clients operating in these innovative sectors means we are well-equipped to provide insightful and focused commercial advice to help our clients navigate any challenges that they may face.

I have completed secondments to the legal teams of both BP and BAE Systems, which gave me a good understanding of the services that clients expect from external counsel and how they should be delivered.

With experience living and working in London, Paris and Milan, I have advised clients across Europe on complex corporate transactions. Bird & Bird has an excellent international network, which requires us to work closely with our colleagues in other jurisdictions to help clients implement their transactions successfully.
