I joined Gordon Dadds from Davenport Lyons, having qualified with the firm in 1998. Prior to this, I read History at the University of Oxford. My work focuses on a wide range of practices, including corporate M&A, corporate and partnership investment vehicles, financial services regulatory advice and distressed M&A work.

Outside of work, I enjoy rugby, cricket and gardening.

What are you most passionate about (personally)?

Sport is my passion. I am still a member of Ealing Trailfinders RFC, although the boots were put in the bin after my last injury!

What is your most rewarding client experience?

Working with the founders of ‘Ella’s Kitchen’ from the early stages through a remarkable period of growth to successful exit.
