Since setting up my own practice in 2004, I have worked as both practitioner in the area of Technology Law and also as Alternative Dispute Resolution provider in a variety of industry sectors, though primarily in the technology sector or cases where there is some added complexity.
I have become an experienced mediator of disputes in the general commercial area, but I have a great deal of experience to bring to bear in what could broadly be called the technology arena, taking in commercial and intellectual property disputes with a technology focus. I am on the CEDR-Solve panel of mediators for IT/IP disputes. I also act in a decision-making capacity, frequently acting as adjudicator/arbitrator. I have been an adjudicator in the CISAS Scheme, hearing disputes in the electronics and communications industry for a number of years. I am also an Expert on the Nominet panel deciding disputes to do with .uk domains, as well as an ABTA arbitrator hearing disputes in the travel industry. I also sit as Chair of the British Computer Society’s Disciplinary Tribunal.
If you want a copy of my CV, you can find it here. You will see that I have been involved in disputes across a wide range of areas: IT and IP, employment, consumer, general commercial, property, sales of goods and services and others.
I bring to any dispute my years of experience in advising on and acting in disputes, as well as a commercial understanding grounded on my work for clients in a non-contentious capacity, skills which have won me acknowledgements – Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession called me “good news” on the most complex of matters when I set up my business and I am now listed in the UK section for bestlawyers.com.
