Katrina Baxter

Associate

UK


I am an associate in our International Commercial Group in London, where I advise clients on a range of commercial issues primarily within the Technology and Communications sector.

I advise on various commercial contracts with a particular tech focus. My experience includes software licensing, SaaS agreements, framework agreements, managed services agreements, outsourcing, data licensing and blockchain.

I began my training with the firm in 2017 and qualified in 2019. As a trainee associate I gained a broad exposure to both contentious and non-contentious matters form large copyright disputes to sports finance deals and completed an IP secondment at an international bank. I have built on my in-house experience in the financial services sector and am currently working on various technology projects on secondment to an international financial institution.

I have a particular interest in how technology is influencing the media, entertainment and sport industry and run our video series MediaBytes as part of our legal and industry news hub MediaWrites.law. This role has heightened my awareness of the key issues and concerns driving change in those industries.

I speak Spanish and fluent Portuguese having lived in Spain, Brazil and Argentina for periods of work and study before training at Bird & Bird. My international background and language skills bring a colourful dimension to my approach to work and diversify the client base I'm fortunate to work with.
