I am a Dispute Resolution Associate in our Creators, Makers and Innovators division.

I advise clients on commercial disputes across a broad range of sectors, but in particular those in media, entertainment, luxury, retail, hospitality, advertising, marketing and finance.

I am a member of the firm’s Media & Entertainment; Retail, Hospitality & Leisure and Restructuring & Insolvency sector focus groups. I am also an active contributor to The Collective by Lewis Silkin, a network for decision makers of luxury, lifestyle and premium brand businesses.

I am experienced in dealing with high value, complex and cross-border litigation, from pre-action settlement negotiations to foreign enforcement. I am also experienced in all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration. I have particular experience in the following types of disputes:

  • Breach of contract;

  • Breach of confidentiality;

  • Misrepresentation and defamation;

  • Copyright infringement;

  • Banking & finance;

  • Insurance coverage;

  • International trade & commodities;

  • Professional negligence;

  • Shareholders; and

  • Insolvency/ director’s duties.

Prior to joining Lewis Silkin, I trained and qualified at a large multinational law firm. I also have experience of working in-house having undertaken a 6-month client secondment to a global insurance company.
