Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world

Having specialised in contentious technology matters for over 15 years, I have a keen interest in digitalisation and assisting clients to navigate the increased business risks which can arise from new IT systems failing, or a key part of a digital transformative project stalling. My aim is to work alongside our clients to get the commercial relationship back on track.

Dawn "acts for a range of clients in complex technology disputes" (Legal 500, 2020).
