I am a versatile and experienced General Counsel and business consultant with over 20 years' experience in the UK and internationally.

I have worked across technology, media, telecoms, power, infrastructure, agriculture, real estate and impact investment businesses in emerging markets. My experience also includes acting as a trusted advisor at board level, managing cross-border teams and transactions and hands-on experience of non-legal executive roles. 

What are your legal specialities?

I have experience advising on major technology and infrastructure projects, as well as digital distribution and connectivity matters for a range of media and technology businesses. I also have broad experience in a number of sectors and markets, and can turn my hand to most commercial legal agreements. I can understand the legal complexities of a transaction, but also have an eye for the non-legal issues. Clients appreciate my commercial and holistic approach to negotiations and problem solving.

What do clients say?

That they value my approachability, pragmatism, integrity and responsiveness.

Behind the lawyer

Outside work, I enjoy travelling, photography, film-making and time with my family. I am a Director of Gihon Partners, an Africa focused impact investment advisory firm and a Director of International Health Partners, an international medical relief charity.
