JET has an amazing impact on young people facing adversity, helping them to be the best they can, and I’m proud to support their work as a trustee.

I’ve been a commercial lawyer for over 22 years, starting in a City law firm and later moving in-house to work as Group Legal Counsel for FTSE 100 companies. Ten years ago, I founded SAS Law, a boutique legal consultancy, which has a strong focus on tech companies, IT and digital transformation projects. Our client base is international and I’ve been lucky enough to spend time during my career working in Paris, Stockholm and Geneva as well as London.

Being a lawyer and an entrepreneur and working for companies of all sizes, from start-up to some of the biggest global corporations, has given me breadth as well as depth of experience. My strengths include pragmatism, problem-solving and devising best-fit solutions in a short time-frame. Risk-assessment and a focus on corporate governance underlie everything I do. These are just as valid for JET as they are for my clients and my own business and I am pleased to be able to support JET in helping as many young people as possible.

Skiing is a passion of mine, as is trail-running, especially in the mountains.
