I qualified as a solicitor in 1995, and I’ve worked in law firms in London, Manchester and Sheffield.
Since the law changed to allow multi-disciplinary partnerships, Counterculture has become my home. I now head up the legal team and provide guidance and assistance on data protection, governance, intellectual property, business law, contracts, website law and charity law. I also contribute to workshops, planning days, talks, written reports and provide other bespoke guidance.
I’ve been busy building up a reputation for providing practical, cost effective legal advice in the creative and cultural, heritage, educational, digital and media sectors.
I’m a visiting lecturer on the Clore Leadership Programme, the STAY programme, and the Arts Council England Resilience Programme. I’ve been an Independent Advisory Board member for Screen Yorkshire, and Clerk to the new National College for the Creative and Cultural Industries. I’m a member of the Charity Law Association.
When I’m not in the office, I’m in the theatre, admiring architecture or sitting on top of a hill.
