Peter Fernando

Senior Associate

I am a senior associate in Duncan Cotterill’s commercial team, with broad commercial experience, including in the areas of information technology, contract, consumer, and intellectual property.

I assist public and private sector clients, helping them procure services and systems, commercialise technology and other products, or simply get business done. My technology law experience includes matters such as privacy/data protection, software licensing, and the legal requirements associated with the ever-changing online environment.

In addition, I also assist clients with M&A transactions, acting for both vendors and purchasers, and have particular interest and experience in relation to software-as-a-service and other technology businesses.

Clients appreciate my clear, pragmatic, and timely advice; my relevant knowledge and experience in the IT industry; and my focus on understanding the outcomes required and helping to develop solutions that are a great fit.
