Felicity is admitted as a solicitor in England and Australia, and has practised in both jurisdictions. Having qualified with and worked for Blake Dawson Waldron (now Ashurst Australia) in Sydney, Felicity relocated to the UK to read for the Master of Law at St. John’s College, Cambridge (as a Chevening Scholar) where she wrote on the then emerging law of privacy. After Cambridge, Felicity worked at London claimant litigation firms Schillings and then Carter Ruck, where she obtained her English qualification.
For the past nine years Felicity has been a full-time Fleet Street pre-publication lawyer, advising the major national newspaper groups (News UK, DMGT, Telegraph Media Group, and Independent Print Media), the BBC, Hachette, and numerous magazine titles and independent TV production companies. In addition to her regular pre-publication work, Felicity has handled litigation and complaints to the BBC, OFCOM, the PCC and IPSO.
Before studying law at Sydney University, Felicity received a First Class Honours degree in English Literature (from the University of Western Australia, graduating first in her class) and she maintains a passion for literature and books.
