He advises on a broad spectrum of technology transactions and digitalisation projects, including software arrangements, outsourcing contracts and R&D collaborations (particularly those involving emerging technologies or disruptive components).

Alongside his transactional work Jon's regulatory expertise helps clients navigate:

  • The UK data protection landscape, and he has particular experience in the unique data protection challenges faced by those operating in the Tech, Media and Comms and Digital Health sectors; and
  • The UK dual-use export control regime, particularly those controls governing state-of-the-art and strategic technologies, such as cryptography and quantum computing.
