Fieldfisher has achieved the highest possible ranking for its International and Cross-border Technology practice, in Chambers & Partners Global Guide 2022.
Awarding the coveted 'Tier 1' ranking, researchers acknowledged the firm as being 'chosen by a mixture of software companies, online media giants, cloud computing businesses and fintech clients to handle a range of innovative projects'.
The report goes on to laud the combination of the firm's Silicon Valley, London and China offices as providing a top-tier service for global technology clients.
The firm's London office is described as a 'major epicentre for international clients', complemented by 'well-regarded offices in Western Europe', and a strategic 'focus on inbound investment into Europe from the USA and Asia' through the firm's Silicon Valley and China offices.
Mark Webber, United States Managing Partner, comments:
"Our top tier ranking is a fantastic recognition of the impressive work that we undertake across our international team of tech experts and is a testament to our international team. I am particularly proud of the role that our US-based EU/UK legal team has played in helping the firm achieve this ranking.
It is an exciting time to be practicing in the international tech space as new innovations rapidly emerge and legislators hurry to keep pace, while the sector continues to attract large levels of investment and negotiates new global challenges. We are seeing US based clients require increasingly sophisticated advice on a wide range of international legal issues. International data transfers, cross border M&A, regulatory advice, global HR coordination and international expansion are all areas that we continue to experience significant uptick in demand for. With a large team of EU and UK qualified lawyers on the ground in Silicon Valley we are well placed to support our clients without having to worry about time zones. Having a coordinated international technology team across the US, China and Europe helps us further support our clients with the international legal challenges they are facing."
One client shares with researchers that: "I choose to work with Fieldfisher because they are experts in the field of UK and European telecommunications law, practice and procedure, as well as in the areas of UK and European telecommunications regulation, mergers and acquisitions, strategy, and business and operational issues and matters."
Fieldfisher's broader International & Cross Border capabilities were also separately ranked Tier 1, joining its UK IT and Data Protection practices among recognised market leaders. You can find out more about Fieldfisher's global technology offering here.
