I joined Gordon Dadds in 2014 from Davenport Lyons which I joined in 2011. After reading PPE at St Peter’s College, Oxford, I began my legal training at Kagan Morris, before joining Harbottle & Lewis upon qualification. I hold an additional qualification as Solicitor Advocate, which means I am authorised to exercise rights of audience in the High Court in all proceedings and in other courts in civil proceedings.
My practice focuses chiefly on commercial litigation and dispute resolution, but I also have experience of civil fraud, media related disputes, reputation management and human rights. Over the course of my career, I have acted in numerous high-profile cases, including acting for The Face in defence of the Jason Donovan defamation case in 1992 and for Peter Buck (REM guitarist) in the air rage matters relating to his flight from Seattle to London in 2001.
What are you most passionate about (personally)?
I love spending time with my family, walking my dog, going to theatre and travelling when I get the opportunity.
What are you most passionate about (professionally)
Acting in a David and Goliath scenario for 'David' and winning. I am always passionate about winning, but particularly 'against the odds'.
