I am an entertainment, technology and media lawyer, and qualified as a solicitor in 1996. I hold an LLM in Information Technology and Telecommunications Law from the Glasgow Graduate School of Law and an MBA from Manchester Business School where I specialised in ecommerce and media.
I advise businesses and artists on a range of entertainment, technology and media law matters, and am on the panel of PRS for Music and BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors) approved industry lawyers. I am also a speaker on a range of panels, including Canadian Indie Week in Manchester.
I am proud to support emerging talent, and my clients regularly achieve success in the Official Charts. Clients represented include nominees in awards ranging from the Mercury Prize and MOBOs to the Classic Rock Awards and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. I also act for BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and finalists in talent shows such as X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.
In my spare time, I love mountain running and supporting Sale Sharks.
