I am a commercial litigation and dispute resolution lawyer working on variety of commercial disputes and contentious insolvency matters.

I am committed to providing clients with a high- quality service and I always strive to get the best outcome for my clients and resolve issues in the most cost-effective way.


I have experience in assisting clients on a wide range of disputes including debt recovery, contentious insolvencies, landlord and tenant disputes, professional negligence claims and other commercial disputes involving directors and shareholders. I have worked on matters in both the County Court and High Court on behalf of businesses and individuals.

I joined Debenhams Ottaway as a trainee lawyer in October 2021 and qualified in July 2023. Prior to starting my training contract, I worked as a litigation paralegal at a law firm in Hampshire and worked as a paralegal for one and half years at a commercial law firm in Surrey, working in the litigation and corporate team.

I studied Law (LLB) at the University of Birmingham before completing my LPC and MSc (Law, Business and Management) at The University of Law.
