Robert Shooter, Partner, Head of Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy, Fieldfisher

I am the head of the technology, outsourcing and privacy law group at Fieldfisher and a leading expert in outsourcing and procurement law.

I specialise in large scale, often mission critical technology and telecoms projects, both in the private sector and for central Government. My client base consists of both customers and suppliers.

I've recently been lead partner on a £1 billion technology outsourcing project for a FTSE 50 company. This time critical deal completed on time and to budget.

I take a pragmatic approach to contractual negotiations, protecting key risks of clients, but cutting through some of the more 'theoretical' legal concerns. I have a reputation for getting the deal done.

Chambers UK 2015 says I am "technically very gifted" and provide "exceptional strategic advice and a dose of pragmatism, and is a stand-out negotiator" They also say the following "He provided exceptional strategic advice with a dose of pragmatism and humour when needed, and is a standout negotiator, I would highly recommend him"

I have a Masters in IT Security.

In my spare time, I play the guitar pretty badly and spend far too long on gadgets.
