About me
I like to really take my time to get to know clients and candidates. I appreciate how important it is for a lawyer to make a move that is right for them and I understand that clients are looking for someone who is a good fit both on and off paper.

With a straight talking approach, I pride myself on my ability to provide specialist advice to clients and candidates that is detail orientated and practical.

Outside of work, I enjoy dabbling in Arabic lessons, exploring the region’s new luxury hotels, fine dining and performing in an amateur dramatic society.
