Chambers UK 2023

Lee is a vastly experienced commercial lawyer. He has spent over 25 years advising on some of the most complex sourcing transactions and commercial projects (UK and cross border) across various sectors.

His experience and diverse client base gives him a deep insight as to what is "on market" and where the touch points are likely to arise during negotiations. He focuses on the bigger picture thus ensuring the delivery of robust contracts whilst avoiding unnecessary debate.

He has invaluable experience of managing multidisciplinary teams providing, "cradle to grave" services, from project inception and development of procurement strategies through to contract management support post contract award. His role has often required him to coordinate and manage support not only from the wider DLA Piper team, but also from client teams and other advisors.
