As the firm’s Commercial National Practice Leader, I specialise in commercial and intellectual property law, drawing on more than 25 years’ experience advising on all aspects of the management and commercialisation of IP.
The clients I work with span a variety of industries (with a particular focus on the research and development sector), predominantly for IP and content owners, frequently advising those clients on the management, exploitation and protection of their rights in old and new media.
I advise my clients on the full range of commercial transactions. These include joint ventures, strategic alliances, collaboration and partnering arrangements, supply chain and logistics agreements, reward schemes and acquisition and supply terms. In addition to this, I advise local and international businesses on the establishment of regional and national franchise systems and provides strategic advice to established operations.
I have also worked on a broad range of technology and sourcing matters, including procurement, development agreements, hosting and outsourcing arrangements, software maintenance and hardware supply and support agreements.
