Harriet Gibson


Hattie qualified in March 2019, having trained at a transatlantic law firm. She is a member of Russells’ litigation and reputation management departments.

She decided to specialise in music law after several years of studying and performing music. She was a choral scholar of Cambridge University, where she graduated with a Classics degree in 2012. She then spent two years in Paris working for barristers instructed to defend a multi-national company accused of corporate crime, and later joined the IP and Commercial department of a London law firm.

She has a particular interest in undue influence and restraint of trade in the context of music agreements and is co-author of the article “lessons in undue influence” published in the New Law Journal.
