I'm a barrister in full-time practice at Fountain Court Chambers. My practice covers art law, commercial disputes, banking and financial services, energy, aviation, civil fraud and business crime.

My main academic interest is in the law concerning art and cultural property. I am also interested in the law relating to civil fraud, financial crime, and corruption.
