I am ranked as a 'Rising Star' for Civil Fraud in the Legal 500, where I've been described by clients as a "really dynamic, skilful litigator" and "a superstar in the making" who is "dedicated to providing an excellent client service, obtaining great results against the odds".
I was recently the lead associate in the case of AA v The Family Officer Limited in which I acted for a high-net worth individual to recover monies following a €15 million push payment fraud. The case spanned multiple jurisdictions and utilised 'Persons Unknown' freezing injunctions in the English High Court as well as evidence of mobile phone triangulation and spoofed emails. This case was a rare example of a fraud claim succeeding at the summary judgment stage.
I have conducted a number of internal investigations for large multinational corporate bodies involving fraud, corruption and bribery. My investigation work often overlaps with claims for breach of confidence resulting from the theft and use of confidential business information.

I have lead on a number of high-profile investigations involving household names, some recent highlights of which include:

• An international sports federation involving parallel judicial investigations in several jurisdictions.
• A global financial services provider concerning allegations of corruption spanning multiple jurisdictions.
• A FTSE 100 company relating to the theft of confidential business information by a competitor.
• A global forex provider in relation to a £40 million fraud.

I have an academic background in media law and regularly advise clients on issues of reputation management. This includes actions in defamation, privacy and harassment. I have advised individuals and corporate entities in these areas and I have been involved in actions against major broadsheet newspapers as well as several online media entities. I have been quoted on media law issues in several newspapers, including The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Mail.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking and travelling as well as obsessing over Arsenal FC.
