Hywel is a Senior Associate in the Commercial department, based in Milton Keynes.  Hywel has wide experience working on a variety of commercial matters working for both customers and suppliers. Hywel regularly advises on  agreements for the supply/purchase goods and services, IT agreements and logistics agreements, across a variety of sectors.  Hywel also advises clients in relation to preparing their Modern Slavery Act statements.

Hywel has spent time on secondment with several clients across his career, including a part time secondment at a software developer, as well as a virtual secondment undertaking marketing approvals work for a major soft-drinks manufacturer. Hywel completed a six month secondment with a major automotive manufacturer as a trainee, and his knowledge of their business meant they asked for him to come back on a part time basis some years later when they were short of resource. 

Hywel’s recent experience includes advising:

  • a Japanese-based global car manufacturer appointing a new, worldwide, marking agency partner;
  • a major hotel chain outsourcing the design and build of an entirely new website infrastructure;
  • a leading UK merchant bank on outsourcing its financial messaging service provider; and
