Having spent over a decade at Bird & Bird, I know lawyers across the firm, allowing me to pair clients with the right specialist for the job. My personal interest in technology and design means that I am always looking for more efficient solutions to the work we do, as well as easy and intuitive ways to present information to clients or to the court.I specialise in technology and financial disputes for global corporations in the IT, telecoms and energy sectors. I enjoy working alongside clients at an early stage in order to avoid disputes entirely, but I am equally comfortable handling high value litigation and arbitration. Recently this has included high profile software disputes and one of the largest group litigation actions in the UK. Meanwhile, advising both suppliers and customers provides a deep strategic understanding on preventing disputes from escalating and the most efficient routes to reaching a resolution.I am particularly interested in the development and commercialisation of disruptive technologies, advising on the disputes which can arise in their adoption.
