Supporting your ambitions

Alison advises on all aspects of technology and commercial projects, supporting clients with the contracting process from end to end: strategy and procurement stages, drafting documentation, change management, re-negotiations, and ongoing lifetime support. These projects usually involve business critical systems and services where maintenance of performance is a key priority for clients. For large scale transactions, Alison often brings together and leads multi-disciplinary teams with varied skill sets and specialisms, drawing on project management processes to ensure efficient collaboration.

Alison has spent considerable time in-house on secondment, particularly at financial services institutions. She therefore understands her clients’ requirements around external regulation, internal governance, and the need to balance risks against ‘house’ positions and procedures. As a result, clients have appreciated her pragmatic and open approach and her drive to ensure that a project delivers on its strategic objectives.


What do others say?

Alison has been recognised as a ‘Next Generation Partner’ for London IT in the Legal Directories for the past four years.

“Alison has a pragmatic but tenacious approach to negotiations, together with an unfailingly calm manner”.

“Alison was excellent, she just owned this project from start to finish. Alison and her team were great to work with. I knew that I could always call on Alison, she would be there for us as a client, and it would always be a good response. That client service stood out for me.”
