For over 20 years, Karen has advised clients (start-ups and charities through to PLCs) on commercial risk in the context of the realities of their businesses. She has worked closely with all levels of personnel from MD/CEO to contracts administrator. Karen negotiates commercial and legal terms alongside and on behalf of clients and assists in setting strategy for and project managing timely completion of complex contracts including licensing of IPR and major outsourcing deals. She also enjoys working on more straightforward matters! 

Outside of Work:

Karen is a keen amateur musician who loves organising orchestras, bands and smaller groups of players, bringing people together to make music for fun as well as for public consumption. She’s lucky that her neighbours like music too!

Calm and professional. Self-resilient. Highly competent in her field, willing to define her capabilities and then pass on to others when she is outside them. Honest beyond reproach.
