Work Department

Commercial Team


David Beynon is an experienced practitioner and has an established profile as a commercial, technology and intellectual property lawyer. David’s varied commercial practice includes advising on supply chain transactions and strategic outsourcing projects across a range of industries. His work also involves technology, e-commerce and the internet, including advising on software development, licensing and complex outsourcing solutions. David has a strong and established profile as a transactional intellectual property lawyer and frequently advises clients, across a number of sectors, on the existence, ownership, protection and exploitation of their intellectual property rights.

Whilst David’s practice extends across a range of industries a significant part of his work involves MedTech, life sciences, healthcare and the creative industries and he has worked closely with several high-profile clients in those sectors. For example, in the past year, he has been advising Bio-Diagnostics Limited and Prima Dental Manufacturing Limited, on several strategically important projects. Such clients are frequently pioneers in their fields and, as such, have a high and demanding requirement for ongoing commercial and intellectual property advice.

In addition, David’s practice also extends across other creative, development and technology focused industries. By way of illustration, David continues to work closely with Tessitura Network, Inc., a leading US based, global provider of innovative relationship management and ticketing platforms designed specifically for the arts, culture and entertainment sectors.

David’s experience in private practice has been supplemented by time spent in industry on secondment (with payment services provider allpay Limited, telecoms giant EE Limited and student accommodation specialists Unite Group plc), which enables him to better understand his clients’ overreaching commercial objectives and deliver his legal advice in a commercially focused and pragmatic way.

David Beynon – Harrison Clark Rickerbys

Headed by the ‘knowledgeable, commercial and pragmaticMartyn Davies following his move from Geldards LLP in November 2020, Harrison Clark Rickerbys‘ small but growing team is beginning to pick up some significant mandates, including several sell-side M&A matters.  David Beynon, another former Geldards LLP alumnus, provides ‘clear and succinct advice’ to start-ups and established companies (including medtech entities) on commercial, technology and IP matters. The team was also recently enhanced by the arrival of Theresa Grech , who joined in March 2022 from Ince in the capacity as a senior legal counsel.

Headed by Nicola McNeely and strengthened by the arrival of David Beynon from Geldards LLP in September 2021, Harrison Clark Rickerbys continues to gain market penetration since the establishment of its Cardiff office in 2020. Although the team does handle its fair share of IT/tech-related commercial contracts work (including advice on outsourcing agreements and software development), it has, however, undoubtedly gained most acclaim as a result of McNeely’s market leading reputation advising on blockchain and NFT matters.
