About me:

I provide straightforward, practical legal advice focusing on intellectual property, software and technology. Having spent several years as an in-house solicitor for a software development PLC I understand the issues from the client’s perspective and use this in-house experience to provide tailored solutions that meet the client’s needs and are integrated with their overall business requirements.

I am able to assist businesses with all aspects of software development contracts as well as licensing, support and maintenance. I also advise on protecting and exploiting intellectual property.

In addition, I can carry out several types of audits including data protection, internet policies and website to help businesses ensure they are compliant with current legislation.
