I joined Lewis Silkin as a Partner in April 2006 after over a decade as in-house counsel in the music and broadcast industry and founded our market-leading Media & Entertainment group.
I have the privilege to act for some of the world’s largest names in mobile, brands, recorded music, mobile, live music, radio, audio-visual production and online.
I am named by both the Legal 500 and Chambers as a Leader in my field.
Brands & Intellectual Property
I specialise in working with clients whom are embracing content-based entertainment and technology for the first time such as FMCG and lifestyle brand owners, advertising agencies, digital agencies, investment funds and financial institutions. I have a passion for working on innovative new business models and in relation to the monetisation of rights.
