Profile:

I am a Solicitor and Manager in the Commercial Disputes team at PwC LLP. I focus on the High Court civil disputes, and have a particular interest in intellectual property and media/entertainment related disputes. I am also the Pro Bono Coordinator in the Legal network at PwC UK, building our pro bono programme from scratch.

I am state school educated, the first member of my family to go to university and am the first lawyer in my family. I grew up in North London before studying law at Durham University and my LPC at the College of Law, Store Street branch. I have had a varied career including a training contract at Reed Smith, where I qualified into the Commercial Disputes Group, in-house secondments at Bauer Media, ITV and Lloyds Bank, as well as paralegal experience (Travers Smith and Bates, Wells & Braithwaite) and adjudicator experience (Financial Ombudsman Service).

I am passionate about social mobility and, in particular, in expanding the opportunities open to those from less privileged backgrounds.

Please get in touch if you think I could be helpful as you plan your own career.
