About me

I came to the Bar in 2011 after spending 4 years in a national solicitors’ firm as an advocate.  I combine a wealth of experience with a business-focused attitude.  I understand what the clients want and how to deliver it.

When not working, I enjoy cooking (badly), health and fitness (occasionally), 80s action films (almost exclusively) and music (don’t ask).
