What do you focus on for your clients

I am a commercial lawyer with a focus on digital media, technology and transformation. I have particular experience in mobile, digital financial services and data protection (CIPP/E Accredited). My career has been focused on emerging digital technologies and helping my clients manage them to achieve their commercial goals.

Tell us about your professional background

I qualified at Denton’s TMT department and went on to work at Olswang and Baker & McKenzie. In-house I ran T-Mobile’s European mobile content legal team, and was Head of Legal for the mobile payments company Boku in Europe.

Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests 

I like nothing more than the challenge of the new; partnering businesses strategically and helping them get the most from their legal team. Clients appreciate my ability to communicate complexity simply.  I live in bucolic Somerset where, when not working, you can typically find me listening to music, walking our mad dogs and building Lego with my two young sons.
