Thank you for visiting my website. I work in the Technology law team at a leading European law firm. I am recognised as a thought leader in the technology sector, with a particular focus on the areas of software, cloud computing, data protection and fintech.
A regular conference speaker, I’ve appeared on the stage at major industry events in the U.K., Europe and the U.S. Recent topics I have presented include GDPR for fintech businesses, the game-changing nature of blockchain, and the impact of Brexit on Irish technology companies.
