Before being called to the London Bar, I completed a doctorate in law at Magdalen College, Oxford as a Clarendon Scholar and James Fairfax Oxford-Australia Trust Scholar. My research examined the liability of intermediaries for third party wrongdoing on the internet, and was supervised by Roderick Bagshaw. I was also a lecturer in contract and trusts law at University College, Oxford.
Previously, I graduated with the top first in law and with a Bachelor of Computer Science (artificial intelligence) from the University of Melbourne. I practised in Australia as a commercial solicitor at the Australian firm King & Wood Mallesons, and tutored undergraduate law students at the Ormond College, University of Melbourne.
My work spans the full range of patent, copyright, designs, trade mark and breach of confidence claims. Recent instructions include an IT contract dispute, a broadcast copyright dispute, counterfeit products claims, and a passing off claim involving search engine advertising.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing violin, opera, fencing and photography.
