The esports and digital entertainment industry continues to change, grow and mature with relentless speed. I provide the necessary, agile and bespoke cross-departmental advice. I bring a unique perspective to the advice I can offer because in a short space of time I already have contentious and non-contentious experience with individuals, teams, publishers and other interested commercial parties.
