As co-head of Taylor Wessing's Silicon Valley's Business Office, David has extensive experience assisting North American growth companies with international expansion plans to the UK and beyond. In this episode, David shares his experience and knowledge with the audience of the "# 1 Silicon Valley Podcast You Must Follow in 2020" (Feedspot.com). Whether you are a startup, investor, multinational, or just interested in doing international business, you can certainly learn something from this interview with David. He and Shawn will cover topics such as:

  • Differences in the startup ecosystem between the US and Europe
  • A high-level overview of the steps involved in taking a US company to Europe
  • How to analyze and decide in which market(s) to set up operations
  • Common mistakes that companies make when they try to enter the European market
  • Popular European countries for VC investment
  • Typical exit strategies for European companies
  • The current state of the investment environment in Europe
  • The United States is one of Taylor Wessing's focus markets, particularly within our core sectors of tech, media & communications and life sciences & healthcare. Recognising the importance of the US market, we opened business offices in Silicon Valley 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.
