Natalie is a brilliant tech focused Head of Legal and General Counsel with experience leading global legal, people and ops teams on legal strategy, product governance and HR. She has worked across a number of disruptive sectors, including proptech, SaaS and regulated fintech and her particular skillset lies in translating complex, often opaque, regulatory requirements into accessible and workable guidance for commercial, product and compliance teams.

She worked as a commercial barrister before moving in-house and has tonnes of experience in all areas of general commercial law, litigation, employment, data privacy, anti-bribery / AML and regulatory work – which includes securing European MiFID licenses. Natalie also sits on several boards, with a particular focus on scaling female and ethnic minority-led businesses, helping with various digital and growth challenges.

Useful to know:

Outside of work, Natalie’s passion is all things health and wellbeing – she runs a wellness brand for busy professionals which curates retreats and other experiences focusing on achieving longevity. She also dances a style called ‘Hustle’ (similar to salsa which grew out of the New York City disco scene in the 70s) and frantically continues to learn French (since learning the French regulators wouldn’t communicate with her in English).

Worked with:

Natalie is Chief Legal Officer at Semper (recently acquired by Crowdcube) and has been Head of Legal at Freetrade and GC at Flatfair. As a barrister, she was instructed by many leading law firms, including Mishcon de Reya and Ashurst.

What Natalie's clients say:

I worked with Nat for 18 months during which her legal guidance, leadership and support have been second to none and instrumental in helping us successfully navigate both our rapid growth and the challenges of the pandemic.

She is an excellent communicator who works with precision and deftness - identifying and applying herself to challenges and then quickly finding the most pragmatic and cost-effective approaches to resolving them, regardless of which area of the law the challenges fell under (corporate / financial / employment).

She clearly demonstrated how valuable a team member she was, gaining a statutory directorship at the company after 12 months - having firmly cemented herself into the senior leadership team.

I can’t recommend her highly enough.
