Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

I like to provide legal advice and help our clients with the use of new tools such as digital platforms and automated contracts. I'm also interested in decarbonisation and its link with HR, and I have most recently helped clients develop strategies to structurally support a greener workplace by implementing electric car fleets or new ways of hybrid working.
