Our international network

Law firms

The majority of our work has a cross-border element to it and we have developed a network of best in class overseas law firms with deep expertise in media, technology, IP and data, which matches our own. Our network spans the globe and we have a particularly strong relationship with leading firms in the United States.

As a firm, we also have an extensive network of business contacts in our focus sectors. We can sometimes support clients by making valuable introductions to investors, banks, in addition to other entrepreneurs and businesses, and potential collaborators, customers or suppliers.
