Oliver Lewis

Data and Digital Legal Director, BT

I have spent my career as an in-house lawyer guiding businesses across a range of transactional and advisory issues – largely in the areas of telecoms, media, retail and advertising.  Since leaving practice I spent periods of time at T-Mobile (becoming EE), Coles Group (retail group based in Australia), Weve (mobile operator digital marketing and transactions JV), Wayra (Telefonica corporate accelerator), Deluxe Entertainment (technology and services provider within the film and TV industry) and latterly BT. In recent years I have specialised in the innovative use of data – both from the perspective of maximising opportunities and reducing compliance risks.
