Commercial, Intellectual Property and Technology Lawyer

“Not too long ago, ‘tech businesses’ referred to software, SaaS, e-Commerce, and startup companies. Nowadays, however, most businesses have technology at their core.

Before starting my legal career 12 years ago, I owned, managed, and sold tech businesses.  I therefore deeply understand the risks and opportunities in relation to technology, privacy & cybersecurity, intellectual property, commercial transactions, consumer protection, corporate structures, and asset protection matters.

My background in technology and business, combined with my legal experience, allows me to assist modern organisations more effectively and precisely with their legal requirements.”
