My role

I provide cross-sector legal, commercial and regulatory assistance for our clients on a wide range of information technology issues. I have a particular interest advising on hardware infrastructure matters and identifying intellectual property in the context of software licensing, with particular attention to the use of software embedded IP. I am able to support business functions, from day-to-day businesses, to special projects, such as large IT infrastructure projects, as well as procurement and ad-hoc advice regarding hosting providers. and dedicated and managed servers agreements, whilst also managing the detail with daily matters around Software as a Service (SaaS) vs. licensing, cloud services, service level agreements and IT systems security.

My experience

I have joined Anthony Collins Solicitors after spending the last six years in-house, supporting private limited businesses legal and commercial advice aimed towards mitigating financial and reputational risk of corporate activity. I have experience of providing IT legal and commercial advice in the health, energy and technology sector. My ability to provide a legal service, a ‘belt and braces’ approach with appropriate statute and case law and when required, ‘light touch’ focusing on the commerciality of transactions is well developed.

I have experience of conducting IT due diligence during corporate acquisitions. My various roles have provided me with experience of domain name and IP management, advising on hardware infrastructure and software licensing, IT procurement, data protection in the software industry (database rights) and assisting organisations to incorporate digital technologies and processes to day-to-day operations.
