Practice notes

Ben is an Associate in Eversheds Sutherland’s Company Commercial practice group. He has experience advising on data protection, intellectual property, technology and strategic commercial contracts.

Ben has a background in science, having obtained a first class physics degree from the University of Warwick prior to completing his GDL and LPC at BPP Law School. Owing to this experience, he has a particular interest in science and technology, but advises clients across a variety of sectors.

Ben also has valuable in-house experience, having spent six months on secondment to a large technology client as part of his training contract where he was involved with matters including commercial contract negotiations, marketing, data protection compliance and IP licensing. Such is the relationship Ben built that he continues to work for that client on a regular basis on a range of strategic matters.

Clients have described Ben as “methodical and organized, showing ownership on all projects that he works on”, having a “calm approach” and giving “practical, accessible advice”.
