Solicitor – admitted 2003
I am a Partner in Michelmores’ Commercial team. I am also responsible for leading the Firm’s cross-office multi-disciplinary Consumer Brands team, as well as heading-up the Firm’s Intellectual Property team.
My practice encompasses a wide range of commercial work, acting for a broad spectrum of clients, from start-ups and entrepreneurs though to international household names.
I value the long-term relationships which I have fostered with many of my clients, built on delivering practical and, where necessary, pragmatic advice.
I have a particular passion for advising clients operating in the Food & Drink sector. A number of my key clients are certified B-Corps, which has served as a fantastic education for me – recognising that a client’s desired outcomes may not be purely based on financial metrics.
I joined Michelmores fresh from law school just over 20 years ago. It has been a privilege to mature as a lawyer and build a practice in tandem with the Firm’s growth over the past two decades.
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law from Nottingham Law School.
