Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I am passionate about the energy transition and helping clients acquire, build and finance a sustainable energy infrastructure to achieve the country's net-zero ambitions.  I have a particular focus on utilising my broad transactional experience, helping traditional energy and infrastructure investors to invest in alternative energy transition assets which require different, hybrid structures.

I have a keen interest in broadening access to the legal sector and am involved in Osborne Clarke's social diversity initiative, OC Social Diversity.
