Chris Mooney

I am the Head of the Commercial Department and lead a team of specialist commercial lawyers across commercial contracts, intellectual property, IT and data and privacy.

Within our team we are focussed on service and delivery so that our clients enjoy working with us and regard us as an extension of their own in-house legal or commercial teams.

I work with some of the most dynamic businesses in the UK ranging from start-ups and early-stage businesses right through to national and international brands.

My main areas of focus are commercial contracts and data protection work. I assist clients with the drafting and negotiation of complex contracts including tech contracts, outsourcing contracts, distribution contracts, agency contracts and franchising contracts. My data protection work involves data protection audits, the preparation of policies and procedures and advising on data sharing arrangements usually with an international aspect.

Prior to joining Marriott Harrison, I worked as Head of Legal for a large IT and engineering recruitment agency, so I have experience of providing legal advice from an in-house counsel and business perspective.
