I advise all manner of organisations within the charity and social enterprise sectors, ranging from large international grant-giving organisations to small sports clubs. My particular focus is on sports-related clients, including clubs, corporate foundations, national governing bodies, grant-giving organisations and many more.

My areas of expertise are diverse and range from governance, corporate partnerships and funding through to intellectual property issues. I frequently advise on IP issues in contracts and grants, and I am also passionate about commercial business with a purpose beyond profit.

I spent four months on secondment at WWF-UK as interim legal counsel.
