Nick Martin

Wotton + Kearney (W+K) has welcomed former EY Law director Nick Martin as special counsel in its cyber and technology practice.

He is a specialist in cybersecurity and technology law, advising on matters involving major cyber risk management, data and privacy risk and compliance, commercial contracts, telecommunications, technology procurement, supply chain risk, outsourcing, and IP. His legal career spans more than 20 years, and he has advised private and public sector clients as a technology and outsourcing lawyer in both Australia and the UK.

Martin also brings experience from a previous 10-year tenure with MinterEllison’s technology practice. As part of W+K’s team, he will initially advise on cyber readiness, data advisory, privacy, and the legal aspects of strategic technology, such as contract reviews and renegotiations.

In addition to Martin, the firm also welcomed James Stavridis as a senior associate for its cyber and technology practice. Stavridis will collaborate with the team on technology liability claims and recoveries arising from cyber claims.

Over the year, W+K has expanded its practice, adding a commercial litigation team led by Richard Leder OAM in January, two new partners in Adelaide later that month, and the expansion of its health law practice with the hire of partner Edward Smith in October.
