Election address: I have tried to bring to Council a practical view based on my experience of day-to-day practice acting for clients, most of whom are UK technology businesses, within a developing private practice firm in an increasingly competitive market. I would like to continue on Council and help CIPA become more relevant and useful to the majority of its membership.
