Me in a minute

I love the challenges of developing and putting my expertise into practice for our clients.

I feel very lucky to be working with the charities and philanthropy team for their range of extraordinary clients. There is an incredible variety of purpose and approach among those with a passion to do good and I have the fantastic job of helping each of our clients realise their own unique vision within the law.

In my time at Withers I’ve had the privilege of working on secondment for leading charities, learning first-hand how my advice can help our clients fulfil their missions. My aim is always to provide advice which is responsive, clear and tailored to help as much as I can, keeping detail and the ‘big picture’ in view.
