About this Speaker

Cyber and emerging technology needs regulation, and having pioneered the legal framework consolidating the law around cyber, cryptocurrency and blockchain, I am a specialist in this field and ideally placed to deal with disputes or problems which need novel solutions. My focus is on solving problems effectively and for the long term. I am experienced in assisting clients in relation to the police, Crown Prosecution Service, Financial Conduct Authority, Information Commissioner’s Office and a range of regulators where the solution requires dealing with the appropriate authority.

I advise a very wide range of people, from the UK Law Commission to global oil and mining companies, entrepreneurs, universities, tech businesses and individuals in the UK and abroad – what they have in common is the need for practical legal advice combined with an ability to deal with challenging developments.

My passion is entrepreneurship, and I am fascinated by innovations with social or environmental impact Outside work, I practise martial arts, play squash and teach at Queen Mary University of London.
