I am a Senior Associate in the firm’s Corporate legal practice group and a member of our Retail, Hospitality & Leisure and Media & Entertainment sector focus groups.

I joined Lewis Silkin in 2017 from a Magic Circle firm, where I trained and spent three years as an Associate (including six months in Hong Kong). My practice area includes advising companies and individuals on a broad range of corporate transactions (both domestic and international) and corporate governance issues. I have worked with businesses across all industries but specialise in the creative industries (with a particular interest in luxury, digital and publishing).

My experience includes the full breadth of corporate advisory and transactional work. This covers public and private mergers & acquisitions, equity capital markets, joint ventures, restructurings and shareholder / governance issues. I also understand the pressures of being a client, having spent six months on secondment to the commercial / corporate team of a technology and telecoms business.

Clients have commented on my ability to “distil technically complex issues into plain English.”

Outside the office, my interests include skiing, travelling and style. I also try to digest as much culture as I can!
