It’s not surprising that we’ve been described as “the world’s premier IT firm”. We handle our clients’ most complex and transformative transactions in the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sectors. We operate as a gateway, supporting our European clients’ operations across the European, U.S. and Asian markets and acting as a hub for our non-European clients’ inbound investment and product strategies in Europe. We serve iconic brands and companies as clients, in a dynamic world where technology continues to evolve rapidly. It's crucial to work with a legal team that understands the technology and can both anticipate issues and work to resolve them creatively.
Given the amount of current and future legal change affecting the TMT sectors in Europe, we work alongside colleagues across the MoFo Europe offices to advise clients on the impact of those legal and regulatory developments – including for example changes due to Brexit, the General Data Protection Regulation and the EU’s Digital Single Market initiative.
