Since Co-Founding Synalogik in January 2018 I have worn many hats, but primarily perform the role of Legal Director. Our trademarked software deploys cutting edge data analytics, machine learning and workflow automation technology to law enforcement agencies and global organisations in the gaming, banking and insurance sectors. The company was founded by a group of like minded individuals from intelligence, policing, special forces and legal backgrounds.
Whilst Synalogik has grown from fledgling company, through series A investment into a global provider to the very largest of businesses, I have continued to practice as a prosecutor in the UK for all Government Departments and agencies in an advisory capacity and as an advocate. I’m currently leading counsel for the UK’s largest County Lines drugs prosecution, Operation Ballet, and in the last 3 years have prosecuted cases ranging from multi-million pound carousel frauds for HMRC, to murder and organized crime in all its guises.
In my “spare time” I sit on a variety of sports tribunals and advise professional sports persons and clubs upon disciplinary matters. A significant proportion of my time at Synalogik is devoted to ensuring data compliance standards remain paramount and I advise on a consultancy basis to our customers upon all DP related concerns.
