I have always had a passion for sports: I rowed and played football at school and for Oxford University, and I was brought up in a football supporting family, which is where my love of sport came from.

I became interested in sports law as a career when I started reading about super-injunctions. I realised at that point that the worlds of sports and law are intertwined at many levels and I could forge a career in two areas I was interested in. I successfully applied for work experience at a media law firm that did some sports work and then joined top sports law firm Harbottle & Lewis to train as a lawyer.

Shortly after qualification, in the summer of 2015 I joined the multi-award-winning BT media legal team, at an exciting time just before BT began broadcasting the UEFA Champions League and had the EE acquisition on the horizon. I spent two and half years as a Commercial Lawyer working in a small team which managed all the legal aspects of BT Sport, reporting directly to the Head of Legal.

Towards the end of my time at BT I became aware of CAA’s increasing presence in the European sports market, as their relationships with Formula 1, Manchester City and sports stars like Dele Alli gained increasing publicity.

I joined CAA in January 2018, as the sole sports lawyer in London, supporting the London and Munich offices, across areas including sponsorship and consulting. I report to the Global Head of Legal for CAA Sports, in New York.

I was recently honoured to be named a Sport Industry NextGen Leader for 2018.

Alongside my career I have coached rowing at a school in London and I volunteer on my university college’s boat club committee, supporting with sponsorship and purchasing of equipment to ensure future generations can have access to the sport without worrying about the cost. I am also very active in fundraising for Diabetes UK and run half marathons and marathons to fundraise in memory of my father, who passed away from diabetes nine years ago.
