Paul  has 30 years’ experience as a commercial lawyer, particularly in national and international IT and communications projects. He routinely assists clients with complex contract drafting and deal closure on both sales and supply chain projects, as well as providing broad-ranging regulatory and compliance advice.

Paul’s practice is strengthened by years of in-house experience supporting  RACAL’s telecommunications division and the network services and B2B/carrier divisions at NTL Inc. (now Virgin Media) with particular responsibility for NTL’s then emergent mobile division. He has also provided retained virtual in-house counsel support to a diverse spectrum of entities, such as global IT service providers, a global US silicon wafer/laser/optics corporation, a global transport research consultancy, a German IT security and card perso business, a golf products distributor and marketing business, network incumbents in north and east Africa, a major utility company and a UK bank.
