I joined Lewis Silkin in September 2023 as a Partner in the Digital, Commerce & Creative team.

I joined Lewis Silkin as a Partner in October 2023 after over 7 years as legal, operational and commercial lead in Europe’s leading digital talent management business. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked in media and advertising for 7 years as a Communications Director. I now work as part of our Media & Entertainment group, specialising in all things creator economy, brand and media.

Having played a significant part in the ‘digital creator revolution’ I enjoy working with clients on new business models, monetisation of rights and new deal shapes.
I get to act for some of the world’s largest names in talent, social media, brand, agencies, production, publishing and distribution as well as start-ups, investment funds and licensing businesses.

I specialise in working with clients focusing on the creator economy, content-based monetisation, image and trade mark exploitation and technology, including for the first time where I hope to add true value.

I am also the CEO and Founder of the Digital Creator Association.
