Next generation lawyer

A 'top-class' senior associate who is 'an astute negotiator who grasps significant issues quickly and gives clear and concise advice'
Nominated as a super lawyer 2015.
“Very helpful and did whatever [she] could to support me. Good advice and practical.”
I work with charities and social and creative businesses, and lead our Culture + Creative work. A lot of my work is commercial and regulatory, often taking on a general counsel role for the clients I work with.
I have a particular interest in IP and intangible assets, and how clients can use those to do good and generate income. I am a trustee of Unitas and Stone Nest, two charities using education, culture and the arts to make a positive contribution to our society.
In 2018 I had the privilege to spend four months as acting Head of Legal at Science Museum Group and supported the fantastic team at SMG in their work across several UK sites, and international touring and commercial work. It was a unique opportunity to support the charitable and commercial work of this much loved institution.
I have worked on its amazing partnerships and work across 144 countries, delivering its youth focused award. This is transactional, governance, charity focused and licensing work – recognising this unique charity’s role as co-ordinator in respect of diverse global charitable work.
I work with a range of galleries, music charities and performance venues which are part of, or have a link to, local or central government. This work typically includes governance, regulation, funding and collaboration.
