I’m an Associate in the Commercial & Regulatory Disputes team based in the London office. I qualified in September 2018 and advise on a wide range of commercial disputes, including breach of contract claims, insolvency related work, claims against former Trustees/Directors and shareholder related litigation.

I have a particular interest in litigation with a connection to emerging markets and have acted for clients operating in Francophone Africa, Central America and India.
Outside of work I am a keen athlete and compete in the ötillö swimrun world series. In June 2022 I came 20th in the ötillö race in the Isles of Scilly (see here) and have competed in Germany and Croatia. I also helped set-up the Michelmores Cycling Network in London.
