Not Legal Advice (“NLA”) explores the commercial and ethical implications of emerging tech through legal & regulatory lenses.

If you're a brand, creator, or entrepreneur innovating at the bleeding edge, it's essential to cultivate a firm grounding in the legal considerations that come with it. NLA helps you think about the legal implications of your emerging technology strategy from the ground up.

What is this newsletter about

I started this newsletter with 2 goals in mind:

1) to help creators & businesses understand the risks and opportunities presented by emerging tech; and

2) to connect with like-minded individuals. The aim is for NLA to generate a network of innovators at the bleeding edge who don't want to be alone in their journey. 

Who am I?

I’ve been working as a lawyer in the blockchain & emerging tech space for over 5 years, focusing on commercial and IP law, as well as anti-money laundering, financial services, gambling, and data protection regulation.

Although I am currently in law, I started my professional journey in the creative industries, as an audio engineer. My love for the creative industries and innovation has stayed with me, which is why I service these industries as a lawyer.

Work aside, I’m very involved in the industry at the community level, as part of NFTUK - the UK's largest NFT community, where I also act as an advisor. 

I am obsessed with immersive technologies, and the promise of XR is what informed my career choices over the last 10 years and the very reason I am where I am today.
