Here at Bird & Bird, I'm a partner in our Commercial group and Managing Partner of our London office. I specialise in co-ordinating Bird & Bird's service provision to provide solutions to our clients' problems across the world.

As Head of the London office and a member of the firm's global executive committee, I know the majority of Bird & Bird people worldwide and so can always find the right lawyer to meet our clients' needs.

One of my other roles is to foster innovation by ensuring that the good ideas that are generated in all parts of our firm are developed for the benefit of our clients internationally. Our building in London was designed with this in mind: it allows us to cater for our predicted growth while creating a more contemporary and welcoming business hub that better connects our clients, lawyers and business services staff.

I specialise in commercial law, especially in technology. I advise our clients on everything from outsourcing projects, network procurement and infrastructure contracts, and managed services agreements to technology cooperation and collaboration arrangements. I also have extensive experience in dealing with the day-to-day commercial issues that companies face, including agency and representation, consumer law, advertising and sales promotions. My team and I spend most of our time coordinating advice on a multi-jurisdictional basis for companies with multinational operations.
