About Will

Will was called to the Bar in 2000 and since 2004 has been dual-qualified as a solicitor-advocate, undertaking a wide range of high value and complex litigation, often with an international element. He has litigated up to Supreme Court level and is regularly instructed in large scale group litigation arising from data breaches and cyber incidents.

Other specialisms include technology disputes, media and reputation cases, and advisory work for established and emerging companies grappling with data- or privacy-intensive technologies (federated social, metaverse, AI, VR, facial recognition).

He was recently elected Chair of the national Solicitors Association of Higher Court Advocates for an unprecedented second non-consecutive term.

Will is listed as a Recommended Lawyer and Next Generation Partner for Commercial Litigation in The Legal 500 (2024 edition).
