Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world
I make sure that all our lawyers are fully equipped to support our clients in grasping the extraordinary opportunities presented by transformation.
I cover all the major advanced digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics, blockchain or cryptoassets. I look at the Internet of Things and digital twins. I track the progress of immersive technology and monitor transformative tools such as additive manufacturing. I can often be found scanning the tech horizon, particularly the "next frontier" of processing – quantum computing.
I get excited about how data- and tech-centric business models can up-end markets and completely change the rules of the game.
