Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

Financial services regulation is an area of law which is constantly innovating and changing in response to changes in society. For instance, in response to the 2008/2009 global financial crisis or the Covid-19 pandemic. I work with clients to ensure they understand these changes and any corresponding regulatory activity.

I am dedicated to diversity and inclusion within the legal profession, in particular, gender diversity. I am proud that I am a prominent and trusted working mother who has mentored many more junior fee earners during my career. This role is incredibly important to me, and I hope contributing to ensure we retain female talent within the profession and sectors I support.
