Partner, IP & Technology
Frank brings invaluable expertise to our Technology, Commercial Contracts and IP team. His pragmatic approach to problem-solving and risk management produces robust contracts that, his clients testify, maximise return on investment by allocating risk now, in order to avoid costly court battles later.
Frank chairs the code of practice board of the Cloud Industry Forum and is regularly invited as expert speaker on how to manage cloud & data risks. This includes provider insolvency, "as is" service, government snooping, loss of data exclusions and service credits. He’s also Wallace’s go-to expert on GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
The Legal 500 says, “Practice head Frank Jennings has particular expertise advising on the cloud and related procurement”.
