Past Projects

I’ve worked on a range of disputes over the last few years, including copyright and major project related disputes working with a number of law firms, including Addleshaw Goddard, Baker McKenzie, CMS, Gowling WLG, Linklaters and Pinsent Masons. I’ve also advised clients on their procurement process and reviewed IT operations in preparation for mergers and takeovers.
