Deirdre Meehan, Associate (Australian Qualified) - Technology, Information and Privacy, Fieldfisher

I am an Associate in the Technology and Outsourcing Team.

I have a broad range of experience in technology transactions across a number of industries, including telecommunications, retail and media. I have advised on the software development contracts, mobile app contracts, IT infrastructure and services transactions, managed services contracts, mobile payments, and software licensing (including cloud-based services).

I have expertise in outsourcing, where I have advised both customers and suppliers in relation to outsourcing back office administrative functions, financial reporting services, school curriculum testing services, and a unique hybrid outsourcing solution for the recruitment and training of staff by a supplier, and transfer of the staff to the customer.

I have undertaken a secondment for VimpelCom, a global telecommunications company based in Amsterdam.  Through this secondment I have built an understanding, from the inside, of the issues faced by organisations in a dynamic, agile and global environment.  I often deal directly with commercial stakeholders to deliver advice which is timely, practical and useable.

I hold two degrees, a Bachelor of Business with a major in Banking and Finance (Distinction) and a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours).

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, sailing and travel.
