I joined The Blair Partnership on 4 July 2011 - the agency's first day of business. Prior to that, I read History and Spanish at Magdalen College, Oxford. After much deliberating, I settled on a career in the law and spent four and a half great years at Olswang where I focused on commercial, IP and IT work for media and entertainment clients. Having done a fantastic internship at a literary agency whilst at university and, given that I have always loved books, reading and the Arts generally, when the opportunity arose to work with Neil as in-house counsel at the Christopher Little Literary Agency in 2009, I jumped at the chance.
I provide a broad range of advice to our clients with a particular focus on IP and IT. My practice includes advising on publishing (print, audio and digital) and content and brand licensing agreements, website development and hosting, e-commerce, anti-piracy, trade mark and domain name strategy and management. I also work very closely with the Pottermore team on commercial as well as legal matters. I love being part of this innovative, ground-breaking project in addition to the daily excitement of working with my partners to further our authors' careers and to shape the future of The Blair Partnership.
I grew up in Andorra so, as well as learning French, Spanish and Catalan at an early age, I was lucky enough to be able to ski frequently. I haven't yet convinced Neil of the merits of an Alpine office but I try to squeeze in as much skiing as I can in the winter months. I also love tennis but, sadly, my enthusiasm for the sport isn't matched by equal amounts of talent. I am an avid reader - my preference is for literary or historical fiction - but I will devour most things. I love everything that London has to offer and try to make the most of it by going to the theatre, opera, museums and galleries regularly.
