Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Jason has a varied commercial litigation practice which includes data protection, cyber security, privilege, sanctions, state immunity, conflicts of laws, EU law and English contract law.

A while back, Jason was seconded to BT for nine months where he helped negotiate key supplier contracts for BT's £10 billion 21st Century Network.  This experience still serves as a vivid reminder of what it is like in-house.

He is a member of the CCBE European Private Law Committee and sat on the FMLC working group looking at Distributed Ledger Technology and Governing Law.

In 2016, he set up Compact Contract (www.aocompactcontract.com) a blog focused on English contract law.
