Senior Counsel

What gets me out of bed in the morning

A good coffee, a good challenge. I love the variety of people and projects that working with Ignition allows me to get involved with, and I’m absolutely committed to providing the kind of experienced, commercial ‘just what we needed’ legal advice that actually supports and facilitates clients’ businesses – blowing the dust off the legal industry.

An entrepreneur I admire

Jo Burston, who toughed out the early days with her start-up, Job Capital in Australia, NZ and now Asia, and made an ambitious and unlikely concept into a multi-million dollar business. But more than that, she is now inspiring and mentoring the next generation of female entrepreneurs having set up a global community #IfSheCanICan. Thinking big and giving back.

The fine print

  • Key practices: Corporate & Commercial
  • Education and Training: Cambridge (MA Hons), Cardiff Law School, Sydney University Law School.
  • Legal Roles: Dual qualified in both UK and NSW, Australia.
  • Memberships: Herbert Smith Freehills (LON) , Baker & McKenzie (SYD) , in-house General Counsel and SME legal consultant.
