About Emma

Emma has extensive experience advising on European Union products law and environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

She has a strong grasp of EU regulatory issues and works with the world’s top global companies to help clarify their obligations in the EU. She advises on the full product life cycle, including bringing products to market, labelling, packaging, and repair and recycling obligations, as well as how to engage with regulators and consumers. She also advises on EU ESG requirements, including corporate sustainability reporting, due diligence and sustainable finance disclosures.

Emma has experience in making complaints to the European Commission on behalf of her clients and supporting them in litigation before the EU courts. Emma regularly manages multijurisdictional compliance projects for her clients.

She also advises when things go wrong – such as dealing with regulatory and compliance issues, crisis management, handling and coordinating regulatory crises in the EU, product recalls and product liability matters.

Emma also is very active in horizon spotting, keeping abreast of new initiatives coming out of the EU in order to assist clients wishing to input into the legislative process and adapt their business in time when new rules are developed.
