Senior Associate | Baker McKenzie

I am a senior associate in the dispute resolution team at Baker McKenzie. I was the first member of my family to go to university. I read law at the University of Cambridge and started my training contract at BM in September 2011, sitting in the real estate, corporate and litigation departments before completing two client secondments with the litigation team. I qualified in September 2013 and have been practising in the dispute resolution team ever since, with a focus on commercial litigation and private wealth disputes. I have been a member of the firm’s LGBT group since my first seat as a trainee, and in 2016 I became co-head of the office’s LGBT committee. I believe passionately in diversity & inclusion, and I am proud to work at a firm that truly sees the benefit of aspiring to these values.
