I am a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution team.

I deal with a wide variety of general commercial disputes as well as having experience in contentious insolvency litigation.


I have experience in assisting clients with a wide range of commercial disputes such as breach of contract, loss of profits claims, professional negligence and shareholder disputes. I also have experience in contentious insolvencies.

I have worked on high value, complex disputes in both the High Court and County Courts with jurisdictional elements being involved in some of those matters.

Whilst I have experience in progressing claims to trial, I also engage in Alternative Dispute Resolution and attend mediations with clients in order to try and achieve a resolution.

I completed my Law degree (LLB) and Legal Practice Course at the University of Hertfordshire.

Having worked as a paralegal previously, I completed my training contract at another local firm in St Albans and I qualified as a Solicitor in 2018.

Upon qualification I joined a Top 50 firm in Cambridge until I joined Debenhams Ottaway in 2024.

In touch

I am a member of the Hertfordshire Junior Lawyers Division.
