A bit about me

When it comes to technology and data law, you need someone who can constantly adapt. Growing up through the 1980s and 90s, I saw the analogue-to-digital revolution first hand and have kept my finger on the pulse as the world has moved from PC to handheld technology. Prior to qualifying as a lawyer, I worked in-house at tech companies ranging from SMEs to international giants, which means I can apply real empathy and experience from the front line of the industry to the legal advice I now offer.

I’ll work with you as part of your extended team, as opposed to offering advice as a remote advisor. I get under the bonnet of your business, understanding your needs, delivering strategic legal advice in the real-world context of your company and ultimately helping you to maximise the value and potential of your innovations.

No two days are the same, as tech law is constantly evolving to keep up with the industry, and it’s thoroughly satisfying to work with clients in sectors as diverse as robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and biotechnology – to name but a few!

Want to know more?

Find a lawyer who genuinely wants to understand your business, and help them to understand what drives it. You’ll get limited value from buying legal services in a vacuum – good business legal advice needs commercial context.

Good-quality legal documents in plain English, which speak the same language as your other marketing materials, can help to drive new business and protect you from risk.

Every business is innovative. Have a process to identify your innovations early and get advice to make sure they’re protected to help maintain (or create) competitive advantage.
