The United States remains one of our focus markets, particularly within our core sectors of tech, media & communications and life sciences & healthcare and venture capital

Recognising the importance of the US market, we opened business offices in San Francisco and New York in 2014.

With a team drawn from the UK and Germany with extensive experience across M&A, international expansion, commercial arrangements and data protection & privacy, we offer advice to some of the largest international tech and life sciences corporations. Additionally, each year, we assist between 50 to 75 North American growth companies on their global expansion plans.

While we don't practice US law, our team on the ground in the US works closely with Taylor Wessing lawyers from across the globe to support start-ups, scale-ups and multinational corporations on their expansion, M&A, capital raises and commercial needs throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
