Why choose us?

We’re a leading law firm to the tech industry, delivering tailored advice to realise, commercialise, and protect your intangible assets.

Our point of difference

Traditional IP (patents, trademarks and copyright) is no longer the primary asset in your business. Data and know-how are key, as are your relationships with customers and partners, and the way you structure your business to realise, commercialise, and protect your intangible assets. We understand this reality better than anyone.

Our experience

We are consistently ranked in global legal directories as a top tier 1 law firm for technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) / IP. We work with a broad range of intangible asset owners, entrepreneurs, cutting edge technology companies, and global innovation leaders. This includes many ‘as-a-service’ providers and customers from various industries. We are members of, and in some instances on the executive of, many industry bodies (ranging from FinTech to LegalTech) and so are on top of the latest industry practice and knowledge. Our team has a rich and varied mix of industry relevant experience, obtained from working with or within market leading businesses.
