I am a commercial law expert and former Legal Director in the Telecoms and IT Sector.

I have a strong track record partnering with senior executives and business units to drive change and transformation, leading and growing high-performing legal teams. I am looking forward to applying this experience from the last 20 years in-house at a leading UK organisation, to the clients I work with at Arbor Law.

What are your legal specialities?

I specialise in Telecoms & IT with dual expertise in sales and procurement matters, including Commercial, B2B telecoms (including retail and wholesale sales), B2C, Infrastructure, Construction, M&A, Disputes, Compliance and Governance. I have deep network knowledge and an ability to translate technical language in contractual discussions.

What do clients say?

That I am personable, calm and always provide high quality, pragmatic and insightful legal advice to enable successful outcomes. My team would say that I am team-minded and supportive. I aim to be the kind of person that people want on their team!

Behind the lawyer

Outside being a lawyer, I am keen boxer and advocate of all the benefits this can bring! I train regularly and have competed in three bouts, helping raise over £300k for charities. I love all things Italian – food, wine, culture and love to explore Italy as a country.
