Areas of expertise:
I am a Senior Legal Counsel with broad industry experience in commercial, technology, telecoms, media and logistics.

What do you focus on for your clients

I have extensive experience in drafting and negotiating a wide range of complex and high value outsourcing agreements and was the in-house legal lead on many procurement projects including in relation to BBC scheduling, playout and transmission agreements (radio and television). Since joining Halebury I have worked in senior legal roles for some of Halebury’s key clients including BT, Sky and Royal Mail.

I focus on ensuring that I add value to a client’s operations by taking the time to fully understand the business and always make sure that I tailor the legal advice to fit the business need.

Tell us about your professional background

Prior to joining Halebury I was at the BBC where I worked in a number of different areas within the BBC legal teams covering a wide range of commercial and media regulation work particularly in relation to content, carriage and distribution agreements.

Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests 

My working style is to provide a commercial approach to legal issues and ensure that the client achieves its business objectives. I am not afraid to raise difficult issues and ensure that the business fully understands any legal risks in the approach.

Outside of work my life is kept busy with putting my negotiation skills to good use with my two teenage daughters.
