European transactional attorney at Field Fisher | USA

I am a leading European transactional attorney based full-time in Silicon Valley from where I advise American businesses on their European expansion with a particular focus on IP, Technology and Privacy.

I focus on complex business transactions, innovative technology and IP licensing and regularly advise both suppliers and acquirers on outsourcing contracts, technology development, AI, SaaS, e-commerce and data privacy.  I advise both multinationals and start-ups on their European legal needs whether they decide to establish a presence, grow or commercialize their products/services in Europe and help them navigate the European legislative framework as well as with contract drafting and negotiation.

I have a reputation for hitting the ground running and my clients trust me to work with both their legal and commercial teams on projects requiring “hands on” legal advice, industry knowledge and commercial awareness. As a Tech geek, I enjoy solving legal dilemmas, integrating clients’ business strategy within my advice and most importantly working with interesting people and exciting new technology. I help my clients grow businesses that are “legal by design” rather than another cost unit.

I have been named a “rising star” in Intellectual Property in Super Lawyers and regularly present on European licensing, EU Copyright Directive, Artificial Intelligence, Brexit, negotiation and contract law for PLI, ESCP Europe, the ACC etc
