I qualified as a solicitor in 1995, and I’ve worked in law firms in London, Manchester and Sheffield.
Since the law changed to allow multi-disciplinary partnerships, Counterculture has become my home. I now head up the legal team and provide guidance and assistance on data protection, governance, intellectual property, business law, contracts, website law and charity law. I also contribute to workshops, planning days, talks, written reports and provide other bespoke guidance.
I’ve been busy building up a reputation for providing practical, cost effective legal advice in the creative and cultural, heritage, educational, digital and media sectors.
I’m a visiting lecturer on the Clore Leadership Programme, the STAY programme, and the Arts Council England Resilience Programme. I am an Independent Advisory Board member for Screen Yorkshire, and Clerk to the new National College for the Creative and Cultural Industries. I’m a member of the Charity Law Association.
When I’m not in the office, I’m in the theatre, admiring architecture or sitting on top of a hill.
