Overview

I’m an Associate and Advocate in our Jersey Private Client Litigation Practice, acting on a wide range of criminal, family and civil matters.

Prior to joining Mourant Ozannes in 2016, I practised in London for several years in crime, fraud and regulatory as a Solicitor-Advocate. My practice in criminal defence included a mix of both Magistrates Court and Crown Court matters. I was later employed in-house at the General Pharmaceutical Council, as a prosecutor investigating professional disciplinary cases and bringing them before the Fitness to Practice Tribunal. I also worked in-house for the Institute for Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), dealing with contentious regulatory matters and prosecuting cases before the Disciplinary Tribunal against members of the ICAEW.

In 2018 I undertook a 9 month secondment at Jersey Finance as a Technical Manager specialising in private wealth.

In 2019 I undertook a 6 month secondment in Mourant Governance Services Jersey Limited as in-house Counsel.
