I am a Partner in the Commercial & Regulatory Disputes team. I lead Michelmores’ Reputation and crisis management practice.
My portfolio includes a wide range of matters covering high value complex contractual disputes and particularly those with a technology or IT focus.
I have a niche practice in defamation, with a particular focus on the removal of libellous material from websites and social media. I work with a number of landed estates, commercial organisations and very high net worth individuals to discreetly manage, bring and defend claims in libel and privacy.
I have been at Michelmores for 11 years and have developed our practice in defamation and crisis management over the course of that time. It is important to me to stand with and support clients when navigating what can be their most vulnerable time. My clients include senior executives, investors, high profile professionals and high net worth individuals. Our speed of service and absolute discretion to secure the removal of defamatory material are key to our success in this area and why our clients trust us time and time again, trust which we never take for granted.
