UK firm Taylor Wessing enters US with double launch
Taylor Wessing has launched two US offices - one in Palo Alto and another in New York.
Relocating to build the Palo Alto office are London-based corporate technology partner Mark Barron, Frankfurt-based technology and data protection partner Dr Kai Westerwelle, and Singapore-based corporate technology lawyer Dennis Tan.
The New York office will be led by corporate technology partner Mike Turner, with support from a team of lawyers from the firm’s international network.
The move is part of a broader strategy of international growth for Taylor Wessing which, under the leadership of managing partner Tim Eyles, has developed its Asia network, and launched bases in Central and Eastern Europe.
