I am ranked as a 'Rising Star' for Civil Fraud in the Legal 500 and Chambers, 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 acted for the claimant in AA v The Family Officer Limited a high-net worth individual in which I was instructed 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 and resulted in the successful recovery of the majority of the of the stolen monies.
I have spearheaded 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 conducted a number of high-profile investigations, some recent highlights of which include:

  • A $4 billion engineering project in Africa involving allegations of bribery and corruption.
  • 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, encompassing defamation, privacy and harassment. I have advised individuals and corporate entities in these areas and I have been involved in actions against leading newspapers and online platforms. 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.
