A bit about me

Bringing together commerciality and the law, I always try to make sure that I consider all the options available to a client, putting myself in their shoes and understanding exactly what they need. Quick, efficient and commercial solutions are what I aim for – above all, my job is to solve clients’ problems.

I work with a wide range of clients, from global manufacturers, distributors and logistics companies to SMEs and start-ups, as well as specialist businesses such as vets’ practices. I also advise on domestic sporting issues involving professional clubs, sponsors and individuals within specific sporting sectors such as motorsport, rugby and football.

Outside work, I thoroughly enjoy being involved in local Worcestershire events, as well as playing (or trying to!) all types of sport, from badminton and golf to football.

Whenever you first receive a contract of any kind, check it, check it and check it again.

Never be afraid of asking others for their opinions, even if you are certain you have the right solution. It’s always worth exploring different people’s ideas and approaches to tasks.
