Personal Statement

I am an experienced dual-qualified lawyer with over 20 years’ experience in intellectual property, licensing, technology, data privacy and general commercial contracts. I have worked in London magic circle and international law firms, and I also bring an in-house perspective having been General Counsel (APAC) at Crocs Footwear and in-house at luxury group Lane Crawford Joyce Group.

I take a practical approach to clients’ problems and offer high quality, straight-forward and easy to digest legal advice. Having worked in-house, I understand client’s expectations and some of the day-to-day challenges they face.
