I am an Associate in the Sports Group at Bird & Bird in London. I advise national and international sports governing bodies, federations, and organisations in contentious and regulatory matters across a wide variety of sports.
My practice involves representing clients in relation to a range of issues such as disciplinary and commercial disputes, challenges to regulatory decisions, investigations, rule drafting, and advisory work. I have acted for clients in disputes before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the IOC Disciplinary Commission, and several other disciplinary tribunals. I have also served as an ad hoc clerk to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on multiple cases.
My experience also extends to advising clients on EU and UK competition law matters, including in the sports sector relating to issues such as athlete eligibility rules, third-party event organisations, and dispute resolution.
I am a solicitor in England & Wales and an attorney in the State of New York. I also hold a Master of Laws (LLM) from Duke University.
