HCR Law Events

About me

As a commercial lawyer with broad international and domestic experience in a variety of sectors, including sports and events, I take a great interest in advising on complex laws which govern businesses of all types. Businesses need the right support and advice, as commercial and corporate law applies in so many ways and in a variety of settings.

From advising on sponsorship arrangements, event management, concessions, franchising, licensing and IT contracts on the commercial side and M&A, debt and equity arrangements, along with privatisation or shareholder issues on the corporate side, my experience is broad.

Whether I’m working with an individual, a start-up, a club, a multinational, or a government entity – I focus on my clients’ objectives and their end goals and concentrate on problem solving and finding solutions.

I have significant international experience, having worked in the Middle East and my clients include sports management companies, athletes, food and beverage businesses, private equity investors, event organisers, and energy consultancies.

In my personal life I am passionate about family, travel, adventure and sports.

Their technical knowledge and diligence enabled them to discuss practical issues with the television production teams on equal terms, which speeded up the project. They are brilliant."
