My day job is running the Commercial & Projects Group and being an executive member of the Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co board. This is a real privilege that constantly brings me into contact with talented, bright people and interesting and challenging issues.
My aim is always to provide sound and fair judgment to the issues we face, applying the emotional intelligence that's needed to find answers that really work.
I value the opportunity to deepen my understanding of modern legal practice in an increasingly complex and international market. It's a genuine pleasure to work with the fantastic team of partners, lawyers and support staff we have.
My other job is in IP law, where I advise on commercial transactions with an IP element, mainly in the areas of life sciences, technology and brands. I've found that the strategic outlook I've developed through sitting as a board member provides an insight into the negotiation of transactions and the identification of key issues.
Advising the government on the IP aspects of electricity privatisation: setting and creating IP policy that became the benchmark for the overall approach on IP.
Advising MoD on all IP aspects of the CVF carrier force project: working to create a dynamic contractual structure that encouraged effective team work.
Advising a consortium bidder for decommissioning nuclear sites in the UK: challenging an established structure to create a more balanced arrangement that drives innovation.
Life science, technology, brand led and businesses, franchises, food, retail and automotive.
I enjoy fishing, reading, and skiing.
