I ‘ve been acting as an independent expert witness in IT and Technology disputes for over 20 years. Alongside my expert practice I keep my technical skills and industry experience up to date through a range of projects, most recently by developing and publishing several Apps for archaeologists.
Live experience of project management, procurement, infrastructure, systems admin, development, testing and support, combined with my previous career with major Information Technology vendors, means I can see the ‘IT problem’ from both client and supplier points of view.
My industry sector experience includes Retail, Finance, Manufacturing, Construction, Telecommunications, Media, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Police, Defence, Local & Central Government and organisations from all these sectors have featured in disputes that I’ve advised on.
The one common feature is that all clients need a clear and objective view of the issues that have caused a project or contract to fail. My role is to provide that view and present the issues in clear, accessible terms so that you and your legal team can concentrate on looking for the best commercial options in a dispute. I have experience in the Technology and Construction Court, Court of Session and arbitrations on disputes from £100k websites to £500M outsourcing contracts and everything in between. I’ve also advised on disputes involving intellectual property, copyright and patents.
