What do you focus on for your clients
I focus on general commercial advice in the technology sectors and am generally comfortable to turn my skills to any contract issues. I have built up specialisms over the past 5 years within start-ups and franchising.
Tell us about your professional background
Prior to working at Halebury, I was an assistant solicitor working in the IP team at Berwin Leighton Paisner and then joined Lawyers on Demand when that first launched.
Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests
I co-founded the family club franchise network, Busylizzy, so spend a few hours a week dealing with any legal issues raised as a result of growing the network (we currently have 20 franchisees across the South with plans to open 10 more over the next 2 years). As a result of running a business, my legal advice leans towards finding pragmatic solutions for my clients and being a sounding board for new initiatives. I’m not a fan of using ten words when one will do and enjoy getting under the bonnet of my clients’ businesses in order to provide more relevant advice.
