I was trained and worked at Freshfields, before a spell at Pinsent Masons and finally at KWM from 2013 until its demise. I have worked in London, Berlin and Brussels and am experienced advising both domestic and international clients across merger control, general advisory work (for example distribution, co-operation agreements) and cartel work as well as abuse of dominance.

Merger control and cartel work (in particular training and procedures for issue prevention alongside responding to investigations) have been key aspects of my work. I currently provide advice across all aspects of competition law and EU law/Brexit implications as part of RBS’ group-wide EU & Competition law team based in London.
