Alastair specialises in all aspects of intellectual property and commercial disputes with a technical aspect. Over his long career he has become familiar with many different technologies, ranging from mechanical devices to microbiology. His experience of copyright and confidential information has led to appearances in a number of important privacy cases. He appears in the Technology and Construction Court, and has also appeared in a number of computer law and electronics cases. (Arising out of Express Newspapers v Liverpool Evening Post, he also advises on Lottery and Gaming matters.)

His cross-examination played a crucial role in his clients’ success in, for example, Designer's Guild v Russell Williams [2000] 1 WLR 2416, Sabaf v MFI & Ors [2004] UKHL 45 and Just Employment v Just Employment Ltd [2007] WL 2817829 . He also acted for the successful respondent in the Supreme Court appeal of Lucasfilm Ltd & Ors v Ainsworth & Anor [2011] UKSC 39

Alastair is listed by The Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners as a Leading Silk in Information Technology and Intellectual Property.
