I am a partner and head of employment at Gordon Dadds. I graduated from Bristol University with a BA (Hons) in History, before beginning my legal career at Taylor Wessing. My expertise lies in the luxury retail, media, IT and architectural sectors. Over my 20 year career, I have dealt with all aspects of employment law within these fields, including a restructuring of Shoe Studio group following the sale out of administration. I am passionate about sport, both as a spectator and a participator; I play lacrosse for West London Women’s Club and I am a season ticket holder for Harlequins Rugby Club.
