Chambers review of our TMT practice:

First-class TMT practice, covering complex procurement processes, IT outsourcing, content agreements and data protection. Additionally provides regulatory compliance support. Regularly represents tech start-ups, including fintech clients, as well as blue-chip corporates in the telecoms and technology sectors. Also acts for state bodies and government agencies. Clients laud the team’s international capabilities: “They have excellent cross-border connections, through a well-developed contact network. It’s like a one-stop shop for us on international cases.” Others praise the team’s client-centric approach.
