Barrister – highly experienced commercial, IT and IP lawyer who has worked in regulated and non regulated companies.
I am a highly experienced corporate /commercial and IT lawyer with experience of public/private sectors and regulated environments. I am practical in the approach that I take to all my work. I have excellent drafting and negotiating skills and have led the negotiations on many strategic/high value outsourcing and IT contracts with third parties (e.g. ECB, major IT suppliers).
In my last role I was responsible for the IT/IP work for the international group. This involved reviewing, drafting and negotiation contracts, advising on new legislation, supplier disputes and protection and enforcement of our IP, particularly copyright and trademarks.
I am able to work autonomously but am also used to working in a team (e.g. tax/finance, corporate procurement, HR). I am also comfortable working at a senior level (e.g. writing papers and making presentations to the board or regulators).
