Why a career in law? I enjoy writing, solving problems, and logically thinking through intellectual challenges – I think that’s probably why I like law. I’m also quite competitive, which helps as a litigator, and I love a good intellectual argument. Constantly learning from the range of experts in our broader team provides me with the opportunity to grow and progress. Why entertainment and media? I’m a partner in the Entertainment and Media Group, which combines my love of the law and all things media. It’s an amazing privilege working alongside creative people, and the buzz of working in a fast-paced media environment is difficult to beat. The scope of my working remit is really broad, with a new challenge every day.
