As a senior associate in our Tech & Comms, Commercial and Corporate Groups in Sydney, I advise our leading clients on a wide variety of technology, communications and IP law issues, where my experience as a software engineer and consultant gives me additional practical insight.

I have experience in negotiating and drafting private sector and government contracts for consulting and technology services and advise on the legal aspects of cloud computing, data protection and emerging technologies. In addition, I assist in business and share sale transactions for technology-rich companies. My experience also encompasses licensing and protection of copyright, trademarks and patents and the regulation of the media and telecoms industries.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I was a senior software engineer with Nokia Telecommunications in Cambridge, UK and then a senior software consultant with Rohde and Schwarz in Munich, Germany. I have also practiced at the Arts Law Centre in Sydney where I provided legal assistance to arts organisations and artists, particularly in relation to the protection and commercialisation of their IP.
