I joined Gordon Dadds from Davenport Lyons in 2014, after training and qualifying at Wright Webb Syrett. My practice focuses on media-related litigation in all its forms, including defamation, libel, privacy, intellectual property and contractual disputes. I have extensive experience of litigating in both the High Court Queen’s Bench and Chancery Divisions, and in the Court of Appeal. I also spend time undertaking defamation pre-publication work and dealing with general commercial litigation outside of the media industry.
