With over 25 years expe­ri­ence I am respect­ed transna­tion­al intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty, infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy and data pro­tec­tion lawyer. I act in trans­ac­tions in which areas of intan­gi­ble assets play a key role and how they inter­act with pri­va­cy laws.

Recent mat­ters in which I have been instruct­ed includ­ed manda­to­ry data breach scheme com­pli­ance, inter­na­tion­al trade­mark licences, alliance prod­uct launch­es, e‑publishing agree­ments, cloud com­put­ing con­tracts, pay tele­vi­sion pro­gram deals, data­base licens­ing arrange­ments and mer­chant acquir­er transactions.
