Some stuff about me and Rebel Legal. Tech / IP / commercial lawyer for 20 years in private practice working with FTSE 100/250 and central government. Swimming with the tide. Mainly wearing ties, seriously striped suits, and black shoes. 7 of those years working within corporate legal departments. Questioning the tide. Mostly in chinos. 4-year-old legal entrepreneur on a learning curve. No longer own a suit or any ties. Founder and CEO of Rebel Legal - now a team of 25 superstars - very experienced in-house lawyers and legal ops professionals, building and delivering real-world legal solutions for global clients and their legal departments. Swimming against the tide. Wearing whatever we feel like.

I'm a general commercial lawyer and have worked for over 22 years in both private practice and for several years as head of legal in house, combining both experiences to provide commercially driven, pragmatic and technical solutions. I've worked with in house and external clients on a wide range of commercial contracts and IP licensing, with particular experience in the tech, retail and transport sectors. But the joy of working in house is the variety of projects and contracts that come through the door. It is very rewarding to work with in house legal and business teams, using our combined experiences to help deliver both critical and day to day "business as usual" work. It's all about getting the job done in the most positive, practical, commercial way possible.
