I am an Associate in dispute resolution, specialising primarily in intellectual property disputes. I am also a member of our Sports Business and Media & Entertainment sector groups.

I advise across many types of disputes and at all stages of the litigation process, from pre-action through to enforcement and/or commercial settlements/alternative dispute resolution and have over 8 years of experience in litigation matters, having been a litigation paralegal prior to qualifying.

My work regularly involves advising clients on matters relating to copyright infringement (including anti-piracy), designs, trade secrets, trade mark infringement, passing off and media and reputational issues, including defamation and privacy. I also have experience acting for clients in respect of contractual and shareholder disputes. I have worked on disputes in the UKIPO, EUIPO, ICC Arbitration, County Court, High Court, Court of Appeal, IPEC, Shorter Trial Scheme and assisted clients on international disputes, particularly in the US.

I also regularly advise on non-contentious matters, including working with our trade mark attorneys to provide advice on advertising and brand protection strategies. I have in-house experience, having spent 6 months working with Warner Media as part of my training contract.

I sit on both Lewis Silkin's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board, focusing on issues relating to race and ethnicity and our CSR committee, leading on a reading scheme with children in the local area. I completed the Oxford University Postgraduate Diploma in IP in 2022 and am the Publicity Secretary for IPSoc.

Outside of the office, you’ll find me dancing contemporary or salsa, at the Stoop watching Harlequins, or visiting an art/photography exhibition.
