The office delivers legal and strategic advice to both domestic clients and local offices of international clients, drawing on the Olswang network to provide cross-practice, multi-jurisdictional support.
Our people are immersed in the TMT sector and have unrivalled knowledge and insight into the unique challenges faced by companies in this space.
