I am a commercial lawyer. I provide advice to businesses and consumers. I have a particular interest in IP, IT, e-commerce and data protection. I frequently advise in relation to:
Contract drafting and negotiation
Breach of contract
Intellectual property protection and exploitation
Intellectual Property enforcement and infringement
Partnership and shareholder disputes
My aim is to provide sensible practical advice which helps you to achieve your goals.
I qualified in 2001 and joined Gotelee in 2007 from the City law firm where I trained and qualified. I became at partner at Gotelee in 2008.
The Legal 500 which gives an impartial view on legal service providers says (2015):

A client of Victoria’s says “Victoria provided a fantastic service. I own and run a successful business so fast, commercial and top quality legal advice is important to me and that’s what Gotelee delivered.”
Another client says: “Very, very, well done with your recent robust defence. Inspired and they caved in!”
“Once again I can’t speak highly enough about the amazing job Victoria has just completed for our company. Victoria’s extremely excellent in-depth knowledge of the law, leads to tremendous support for our business. A ‘safe pair of hands’ for our legal requirements doesn’t do Victoria justice. We do, however, have extreme confidence in Victoria’s ability to deal with the situation effectively and efficiently and allow us to get on with the day-to-day work. A fantastic asset to have within our legal team.” Andrew Macmillan
