Toby brings both in-house and private practice experience to bear when advising clients, which allows Toby to find pragmatic solutions to commercial and legal problems.
Lisa Paz has been promoted to Senior Associate. Lisa specialises in technology, media and telecommunications.

Lisa adds considerable value to clients through her in-house telecommunications and systems implementation experience.
In view of the current circumstances we all find ourselves in it is fantastic to be able to share such great news. The promotion of Andrew, Lisa Sarah-Jane and Toby recognises the contribution that they have each made to the firm and the capability that they add.
COVID-19 and this lockdown are showing all of us how important our communities and the teams we are part of are. We are fortunate to have such a terrific team at HGM and so are really pleased to be able to recognise the contribution of some key members.
