This means we understand the industries in which you transact including telecommunications, technology, sourcing, sports and media and are able to develop innovative solutions for you.

Sector convergence coupled with the rapid spread of new technologies has opened up a wealth of opportunities in your industry and you must move swiftly to capitalise on them. To stay ahead of the competition, you need to spot and pre-empt legal difficulties before they arise.

Our clients range from multinationals and major domestic companies to high growth businesses, start-ups and their investors. From M&A to investment and financing, from tax to licensing and product liability, from intellectual property to employment and environmental issues, from network sharing to outsourcing, our multi-disciplinary teams can help guide you towards the most commercially successful outcome.
