Bio

I am a partner in the Dispute Resolution team at Baker McKenzie in London and a member of the Global Compliance & Investigations practice. I specialise in complex and high-value international and domestic commercial litigation for multinational clients, with specialist expertise in anti-bribery and corruption investigations, compliance and trust disputes. I have extensive experience working with multinational clients in emerging markets and have coordinated multiple investigations into suspected bribery and corruption and advised clients about compliance risks and potential UK Bribery Act exposure in Africa, India and jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific.   I have counselled clients on the management of external investigations by the UK Serious Fraud Office, the US Department of Justice and SEC, the Hong Kong Securities & Futures Commission and the European Securities and Markets Authority.

In March 2021, I was named by Law.com in its list of Top 25 Female Lawyers Under 40 .  I sit on the Steering Committees of the Firm’s Africa Strategy and the London Office’s employee network for Black, Asian and minority ethnic employees, BakerEthnicity.

I live in North-East London with my husband.  I enjoy running, seeing live music and theatre and travelling (when permitted!).  Looking forward to connecting with WWCDA members around the world.
