Hayley is a technology and commercial lawyer specialising in IT, telecommunications, privacy, intellectual property, outsourcing and commercial supply and procurement.  She has extensive experience in a wide range of technology focussed transactions and advice including licensing, development, commercialisation, supply and acquisition.
