A bit about me

Working with a wide range of businesses, from sole traders to limited liability companies, across several sectors, including hospitality and healthcare, I enjoy both the problem-solving aspect of being a dispute resolution lawyer and the chance to build great relationships with clients.

It’s important to me to keep them informed at every stage of the process, and to make sure that I work effectively and pragmatically – I’m clear about timescales and costs and I make the process as easy to understand as possible. I think my business degree has helped me to understand the commercial world and appreciate a client’s position.

Outside work, I enjoy football and rugby, as well as spending time with friends and family.
