About John

I am a specialist in all areas of commercial and technology law and provide advice to clients in these areas, including dispute management.

I have more than 25 years’ experience in the TMT sector: my clients range from tech start-ups to multinational companies and public sector organisations and have  advised  a number of household names in this sector.

My colleagues and I always strive to be an extension of our client’s management or legal team  as well as acting as their legal representative if they have no in-house legal team.

I often help clients to negotiate and draft complex commercial and technology agreements, covering related areas such as data protection, social media and procurement issues. As a former litigator advising on large scale IT disputes, I am adept at avoiding the pitfalls that so often befall technology contracts.

I am also closely involved with the protection and exploitation of all forms of intellectual property, often advising UK universities and businesses on innovation projects and R&D collaboration.

Increasingly, my clients are from overseas carrying out business in the UK and/or looking for advice on contracts governed by English law. Equally, I am able to assist UK clients who need foreign legal advice through good connections with a range of international law firms. In particular, I am President of The IT and IP Law Group Europe, an alliance of European law firms specialising in Technology and Intellectual Property legal issues.

I have advised the following clients:

Carillion, ASOS.com, EDS, ICL Fujitsu, Canon, G4S, Mouchel, Paperchase, University of Reading, University of South Wales, Mahindra Satyam, Atmel Corporation, and Intellectual Property Online.
