John Douglas, Technical Director at First Response
John Douglas specialises in incident response involving server and systems breaches resulting in data theft. He holds a Master’s Degree in Forensic Science in the field of Forensic Computing.
John brings over 20 years of computer experience and programming skills to the cases he works on. His ability to reverse engineer malicious code used to compromise computer networks, to determine what intellectual property has been ex-filtrated, who is responsible and how exactly they got in has been central to several cases involving computer misuse and ‘hacking’.
Nicola Billen has specialised in dispute resolution since 2004 and has a broad range of experience in commercial litigation. Her clients include a wide range of industries, including IT and telecommunications and her practise covers disputes ranging from corporate and shareholder to general contractual, including breach of restrictive covenants and confidentiality.
Recent work includes representing a software company over a dispute regarding ownership of its IT platform and source code, which included applying for injunctive relief. Nicola has helped many clients understand what risks can be insured against, what can be mitigated and got rid of, and what they just need to live with. By constantly reviewing internally, businesses can make sure their risk is properly managed, leaving the Board to focus on what is important: driving shareholder value and growth.
With more than 17 years' experience, Debbie has worked with global brands, household names and entrepreneurial businesses advising on trading arrangements, contracts, collaboration agreements, intellectual property rights protection and commercialisation, licensing and royalty agreements, IT contracts (software licences, support and maintenance, SaaS / Cloud, managed services and IT infrastructure contracts), online trading / website regulation, privacy and data protection issues (including GDPRs).
