I joined Gordon Dadds from Davenport Lyons in 2014, after training and qualifying at Wright Webb Syrett. My practice focuses on media related litigation in all its forms, including defamation, libel, privacy, intellectual property and contractual disputes. I have extensive experience of litigating in both the High Court Queen’s Bench and Chancery Divisions, and in the Court of Appeal. I also spend time undertaking defamation pre-publication work and dealing with general commercial litigation outside of the media industry.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

In legal practice, do not be surprised by anything.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

No two days are the same.
