I was called to the Bar by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple in November 1988. I am no longer in practice.

I am a recognised authority on electronic signatures and digital evidence. (For a list of publications and speaking (teaching electronic evidence to judges, lawyers and students, academic lectures and conferences) see the downloadable file).

I am a Visiting Lecturer at the School of Law, University of Tartu, Estonia.

I am an Associate Research Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London.

I participated in the Canada-UK 2018 Colloquium Artificial Intelligence & Society: Choices, Risks & Opportunities (Toronto, 23-25 November 2018), and the Report is now available.

Nicholas Bohm and I have prepared a response to the consultation by the Law Commission on Making a Will. We have also written an article on electronic signatures and reliance. We are members of the Law Commission Advisory Board for their project on the electronic execution of documents.

I established the Digital Evidence and Electronic Signature Law Review in 2004. It is the leading journal on the topic for judges, lawyers and scholars across the globe, and is now an open source journal.

In 2016, I published a Draft Convention on Electronic Evidence.
