I'm an experienced technology and communications lawyer, advising on complex, strategic technology and communications projects for clients operating in a variety of sectors.
My expertise and interest lies in advising businesses being transformed or disrupted by technology.
Since joining the firm in 2012, I have advised on a range of technology and communications projects from network infrastructure arrangements to technology transformation projects. I work with clients (ranging from start-ups to multi-nationals) operating in a variety of sectors, including aviation, financial services, media, retail, technology and telecommunications.
I work closely with my clients' legal, IS and procurement teams at each stage of the project lifecycle, from initial tender and vendor selection through to contract conclusion and beyond, including contract operation, change and exit.
I support my clients not only with core legal advice, but also with more strategic thinking. This ensures that I am aligned with my clients' goals and longer term strategy, which has resulted in a series of rewarding, long term working relationships which is one of the most rewarding aspects of my role.
In addition to complex large scale projects, I have over ten years' experience in advising on software licensing, development and support agreements, SaaS and cloud based arrangements, framework agreements, IP licences and collaboration agreements and network services arrangements (such as capacity and dark fibre agreements).
I am an active member of the firm's technology and communications sector group and participate in industry led events so that I am positioned to offer insight to my clients on the opportunities and challenges presented by emerging and disruptive technologies. I regularly present on legal and commercial issues arising from technologies such as AI, 5G and the IoT. I really enjoy working in such an innovative and forward looking field.
During my career, I have worked on secondment including 6 months supporting a major technology separation and integration project. I have also spent over a year on secondment to an Australian firm, where I advised on a range of technology and communications projects, including relating to Australia's national broadband rollout.
