I feel very lucky to combine so much of what I love with my work and feel this energy is reflected in what I achieve every day
My practice has allowed me to combine many things I am passionate about and for that I am very grateful.
As an avid cyclist, a former competitive fencer and general all-round sports fan, I have always wanted to work with sports clients. I have recently completed a sports law qualification, alongside my work in practice, to deepen my knowledge in this exciting and rapidly developing area. My time at Withers has given me the opportunity to advise an ever expanding array of clients including Renault F1, Jurgen Klopp and Ilkay Gundogan.
I also work closely with designers and fashion brands, often alongside our corporate team, to assist with a wide spectrum of employment law issues. I love the challenge of understanding the creative side of the business and matching this with logical and commercial solutions.
I very much enjoy the variety of my practice and take the same competitive spirit into my work for clients in other sectors, whether individuals or employers. The skills and knowledge I have gained in relation to the highly bespoke areas of sport and fashion can be deployed to better understand and address my client’s needs.
