For over thirty years in both private practice and in-house, Ian has been involved in major projects and transactions that carried significant consequences for his clients and organisations. He has been a general counsel and company secretary as well as a senior manager and lawyer at companies including BT, BP and Thomson Reuters. He has taught lawyers and others legal risk management for a number of years. His approach is practical, but also looks at risk as more than managing by algorithms and checklists. Ian is the author of Butterworth’s In-House Lawyers Handbook.
