Emma Hickson Partner, IT & Cyber & Restructuring and Insolvency

I am a true business advisor and am known for being highly pragmatic and commercial

I am an experienced commercial contracts lawyer with a particular interest in technology and outsourcing. I advise clients working in both the public and private sectors and have significant experience of working on large-scale public sector and financial services outsourcings from cradle to grave.

I trained and qualified at Eversheds in London and, before joining BPE, spent eight years working at IT services provider DXC Technology (formerly Computer Sciences Corporation) as an outsourcing lawyer. I have also spent some time working in the fintech sector as Chief Legal Officer for Norwegian mobile payments company, Luup. 

I enjoy getting to know my clients and look at the legal and commercial risks they face with a view to providing practical, working solutions which are tailored to meet their needs and based on my experience of working in industry for almost a decade.


Emma has been named a Next Generation Partner by the Legal 500.
