About

I am a Competition, Regulatory and Commercial lawyer advising companies in technology driven sectors on their day-to-day commercial and regulatory needs. I advise many start-up and high growth companies on their legal requirements and in obtaining outside investment to scale-up their businesses.

I act as a trusted advisor to my clients, an extension of their internal team. I'm not just there for specific legal matters as they arise, but to help companies and their shareholders/investors develop a strategy which minimises and deals with any legal risk.

In practical terms, I advise on competition issues raised by commercial agreements, behavioural practices, acquisitions and joint ventures; regulatory and broader commercial matters in the Media, Technology, Telecoms, Sports, Pharmaceuticals and Education sectors; and structuring, commercial and IP matters affecting entrepreneurs and investors in growth companies.

I am a regular contributor to the written and spoken press on legal issues affecting technology based companies.

I am passionate about using my knowledge and contacts to help industries navigate legal and regulatory challenges. I am an active board member of industry trade bodies, including LawinSport, and the Association for Interactive Media and Micropayments (AIMM).

Outside of work, my family and sport are my key interests. I am Chairman of London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club and an ever willing tennis player on the courts of North-West London.
