I am an international technology and internet lawyer; a leading contract and regulatory specialist in EU based technology transactions, particularly those with a disruptive component.
I advise where cloud, digital and online technologies converge and leverage IP and/or data in order to add value. Particularly advising on enterprise solutions, partnering, sales channels or considering legal issues relating to internet or cloud services.
Whether an emerging-growth or listed enterprise, when the decision to internationalise comes this inevitably leads a GC or senior management team to deal with unfamiliar legal regimes. For nearly 15 years I’ve worked alongside such individuals and with over one hundred US businesses inward investing, selling or licensing product or exploring online activities in the EU.
It’s my job to ease the expansion process. I translate local legal practices; help shape expansion plans or simply act as an extra resource to cope with deal velocity or scaling. I can be a project manager, quasi-EU general counsel or simply a portal to the wider lawyer and skills pool within fieldfisher across Europe and beyond.
I am a recognised English Law expert for IT legal work in each of the leading directories. I co-authored the UK chapter of Global Security and Privacy Lawpublished by Wolters Kluwer and I’m a regular speaker at key industry events.
When not working you can find me with my family somewhere in the great outdoors – skiing, biking, kayaking, camping accompanied by a myriad of gadgets.
