Career

Sally joined Walker Morris as a partner in September 2019 to lead our Technology Group. She previously worked at an international law firm where she was a key partner in its Technology Group.

Sally has over 30 years’ experience of helping clients on their technology contracts. She is recognised as a leader in her field and has worked with many large retail and telecoms clients, as well as being ranked as a leading individual by both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in clients’ day-to-day operations and getting this advice right is critical. Sally’s experience of technology-related contracts means that she can guide clients through the jargon to secure an effective agreement where risk is identified, understood and properly managed.
