What do you focus on for your clients

I’m a commercial lawyer with twenty years experience in private practice and a variety of in-house roles. I primarily focus on project led commercial contracts with a special interest in IT, Financial Services and associated regulatory compliance, procurement and outsourcing of services and data protection. My focus for my client is always to protect their interests, keep risk and cost to a minimum but to ensure a business focused and pragmatic outcome is achieved.

Tell us about your professional background

I’ve worked in private practice and in-house in the UK and understand the different commercial emphasis in each type of organisation. My in-house experience includes roles at Peacocks Stores Limited, Nationwide Building Society, Sky, Fusion Business Solutions Ltd.

Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests 

My working style is collaborative, friendly but firm. I like to be fully involved in negotiation at an early stage so that I can understand the reasoning behind some of the commercial decisions which need to be reflected in the contract documentation.

We have two dogs Mojo and Toby and we enjoy walking in the Brecon Beacons, the Gower Coast and the Cotswolds.
