As Senior Legal Counsel Emer works with her Nesta colleagues to provide the legal support required to help Nesta achieve its bold and ambitious innovation missions.

Emer advises Nesta and its subsidiaries on everything from strategic and governance matters, to company law, charity law and regulatory compliance, data protection and intellectual property issues and establishing, negotiating and maintaining effective contractual arrangements.

Emer previously worked in private practice before joining Nesta in 2017 as Legal Counsel.

Outside of Nesta she is an animal lover, aspiring yogi, lapsed pianist and a keen (but very amateur!) explorer of artistic hobbies including painting and photography.
