Senior Legal Counsel and Head of the Disputes Team, Cornerstone

I am a Senior Legal Counsel at Cornerstone and have been with the business since 2016, leading the disputes team. We provide pragmatic and commercial advice to the business. We help to identify and assess risks to minimise exposure and manage all the disputes for Cornerstone’s estate.

I am passionate about guiding the business to make good decisions, helping the rollout of new technologies, including 5G, and managing the complexity of new legislation affecting the industry in order to maintain and improve the estate for the customers using the networks that depend on our infrastructure.

Before joining Cornerstone I worked as private practice solicitor in London specialising in property litigation and working for highly ranked teams in the West End and City.  My practice spanned both the commercial and residential fields, development and all types of property and landlord and tenant relationships as well as more specialist fields such as telecommunications related property disputes. I am a member of the Property Litigation Association.
