Ben is a pragmatic and commercially focused lawyer with strong tech and general commercial experience in the UK, Europe, Nordics, United States and Asia Pacific. Ben is a SaaS guru and is highly experienced in drafting and negotiating software services and licensing agreements. He also has lots of experience working on a wide variety of commercial agreements.

He is a big advocate of the early engagement and incorporation of legal in commercial discussions to help shape deals in the most beneficial way to a business, maximising revenues and minimising risk.

Useful to know:

In Ben’s spare time you’ll find him mountain biking and green-laning (in a 48-year-old Land Rover!) with his wife and three children or playing golf without them.

Worked with:

Ben worked as Legal Director at Aptos, Anova, Flexera Software and Micros Systems and as Head of Legal at Torex and Advanced; prior to that he was in private practice. He has also worked with Zoovu, Zenkraft, Damia Group and Impero.

What Ben's clients say:

From my first conversation with Ben it was clear he was knowledgeable on the legal issues at play and would be prompt with his support, which was important as time was truly of the essence in the negotiation. Despite the time difference between Maine and the UK, he made himself available for calls with our team and made the revisions we needed expeditiously. We speedily closed on the deal with all the terms we needed nailed down cleanly. I would highly recommend Ben for any contract matter in the EU. He was exactly what we needed.
