I head up Arbor's Emerging Markets and Impact Investing Group. I have over 25 years' experience in the UK and internationally advising private and public sector clients in technology, media, infrastructure, clean energy, real estate and healthcare sectors.

I began my career in London in the Company & Commercial group at City firm Charles Russell Speechlys before moving in-house to a major UK digital infrastructure group as Head of Legal. From there I went on to serve as General Counsel to an African clean energy fund before joining a US headquartered impact investment business focused on agriculture and real estate projects across sub Saharan Africa. I also founded a multi-disciplinary consultancy focused on impact investing in Africa before joining Arbor Law.

Legal Specialties

I am a versatile, corporate and commercial lawyer with a wide range of experience advising international clients. I have a particular interest in impact investing and businesses focused on sub Saharan Africa. I specialise in managing complex cross-border transactions with multiple stakeholders.

What Clients Say

That I am an astute, commercially minded and pragmatic advisor, good at building relationships, with strong EQ, integrity and cross-cultural skills.

Behind the lawyer

Outside work, I serve as an advisor and trustee to an international healthcare non-profit and social enterprise in Ethiopia. I am a semi-professional photographer and keen film maker and love spending time with my family in London.
