Robert is a passionate technology law expert with deep-rooted legal expertise and an understanding of technology that is second to none. Robert’s forte is his ability to put together legal texts like agreements, replies to regulatory consultations and legal contestations based on technologically-sound foundations.

A solid understanding of underlying technologies lies at the heart of our work at the MIICT. We have the legal expertise, and can leverage it for the projects we work on, but we also have the technical understanding to enable us to be accurate and precise in our legal wording and in ensuring compliance with existing legal frameworks in all the research we undertake.

Robert brings to the table a wealth of experience garnered while working for private sector clients of varying sizes, from big multinational Fortune 100 companies to relatively small SMEs. Sectors where Robert has been involved in include telecoms, software development, entertainment, digital games, online casinos, data center and cloud services, engineering design, cybersecurity, user-generated content, artificial intelligence, transport, health, fintech and regtech.
