I work on a wide range of commercial disputes involving both individuals and corporate entities, often in different sectors and across multiple jurisdictions. I have a varied experience of litigious matters involving contractual disputes, competition law, personal injury as well as working on judicial reviews, public inquiries and inquests.
Examples of recent client work include: 

  • Acting for a high-net-worth client in respect of a claim of fraud valued at over US$2b. The dispute includes complex issues of Ukrainian law and jurisdiction;
  • Representing individuals in a contentious probate claim concerning an estate valued at approximately £150m, involving parallel proceedings across EU / UK jurisdictions;
  • Acting for a Nigerian energy client in LCIA proceedings in a contractual dispute brought against a Singaporean manufacturing company;
  • Assisting an environmental NGO in bringing an Aarhus Convention judicial review claim against DEFRA / Ofwat; and
  • Bringing a negligence claim under London Maritime Arbitrators Association rules against a luxury yacht broker in Mykonos, Greece. 
I have a particular interest in the energy / environmental sectors and novel claims arising therein, including greenwashing and climate damages attribution cases. I co-founded the firm's working group for The Chancery Lane Project (TLCP), an initiative that upskills lawyers in climate-aligned contractual drafting to assist our clients in their net zero transitions. I have been a member of the UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA) since 2019 and am actively involved in the firm's Sustainability Committee.
Before studying English law, I completed a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Political Science at McGill University in Canada. I am a native French speaker and a permanent resident of Hong Kong, where I grew up and my family lives.
