I have extensive dispute resolution experience with a particular focus on joint venture and shareholder disputes, directors' duties and misfeasance claims, as well as civil fraud, international asset-tracing and enforcement cases.
In addition to my litigation practice, I am a corporate investigations and risk advisory specialist. I advise clients on the full breadth of financial crime issues, from educating on best practice preventative action, through to running internal, regulatory and prosecutor led investigations. I have acted on a number of high-profile investigations involving fraud, bribery and corruption allegations, sanctions breaches and dawn raids.
My client base operates predominantly in the EMEA and APAC regions and includes domestic and global organisations in the financial services, oil and gas, green energy, retail and pharma sectors.

My spare time is spent with my family and enjoying all things equestrian.
