I am into innovation and enterprise generally, but particularly in the legal services sector, both as regards the Business of Law as well as Access to Justice. I studied Law in Germany and was a corporate solicitor in the City and in Bristol before I changed my job to Law Academic and LegalTech Lead for the University of The West of England in Bristol. I am now joining the West of England Combined Authority developing and heading up its Innovation and Sector Development Service pursuant to the Local Industrial Strategy. This gives me further scope to strengthen the region's innovation eco system, and this will of course also continue to include legal services innovation. I am co-founder of Bristol+Bath LegalTech, connecting and collaborating with law firms, not for profit organisations, entrepreneurs, individuals and techies. I somehow also find time to spend with my partner, teenage kids and neurotic spaniel, to kayak and swim outdoors, to hike and camp, and to attend music gigs and festivals. And I frequently head over to Germany to see my family there. It's busy!
