Technology underpins everything we do in tech, media and comms. It's what we specialise in and what we're known for. Our knowledge of technology has been built through exposure to and direct involvement in entrepreneurial ideas and innovation. Our international team of technology lawyers has worked on transformational technologies that have supported or challenged the way business is done, establishing new business models.
Our clients range from traditional global technology businesses to those creating the latest breakthroughs in AI, Robotics, Blockchain and 3D printing. Learning with our clients, we're able to identify legal issues and help them address challenges so they're compliant and their ideas are protected.
We operate in the technology hotspots across Europe and on the US West Coast. We were the first European law firm to open an office in Silicon Valley and we've helped many businesses on their journey from series 'A' through to public funding as they have internationalised their ideas and taken on world markets.
