  • As a partner I have extensive experience as a specialist practitioner in clinical negligence and professional disciplinary cases. 

  • For six years between 2012 –2018, I was the senior partner at BLM, responsible for the strategy, leadership and development of the business in the insurance and commercial arena. I oversaw the re-engineering, re-structuring and re-branding of the business, as well as the integration with other law firms to create a UK and Ireland practice. During my tenure I was also the driving force for extending our service offering internationally, with the creation of the Global Insurance Law network in which BLM was an initial founding member. In the past six months I oversaw a further strategic diversification with the introduction of our commercial arm, Commercial Advisory and Private Wealth, extending our offering to existing clients as well as opportunities to new prospects. 

  • From 1 April 2018, I am moving to a new role as Head of Risk and Compliance. My role embraces all aspects of risk and compliance throughout the whole of the business in the UK and Ireland.
