RHTLaw Taylor Wessing congratulates Taylor Wessing UK on its move into East London
Taylor Wessing UK is relocating its dedicated Tech City office from Great Eastern Street to Second Home, London’s most high-profile community of entrepreneurs and creative businesses in the heart of London’s tech cluster in Shoreditch.
The Taylor Wessing Tech City team focuses on UK and international tech start-ups and more established tech companies, with representation from the firms’ Technology, Venture Capital, Intellectual Property, Tax and Incentives, Inward Investment and Employment groups. The Firm has offices in all the major technology centres around the world, including London, Cambridge, Paris, Berlin, Singapore, New York City and Palo Alto.
Second Home, the flexible members-only workspace was launched in 2014, in a former carpet factory just off London’s Brick Lane. Since then, it has become renowned for being a hub for fast growing creative companies.
Commenting on the move to Second Home, Adrian Rainey, Partner in the Corporate Technology team at Taylor Wessing said: “London’s tech sector has grown and internationalised enormously since we became the first City law firm to open an office in Tech City in 2011. Our office is at the heart of that community and we can benefit from the ideas and innovation spilling out of it.”
Simon Walker, Partner in the Corporate Technology team added: “For us, it’s about new ways of thinking and change, being a part of that discussion and being as close as possible to the industries we’re expert in.”
Josh Rivers, Head of New Membership at Second Home said: “We think Taylor Wessing’s great work in supporting entrepreneurs is a perfect fit for Second Home. We’re really thrilled to welcome them to the space.”
Taylor Wessing’s Tech City team moved to Second Home on 20 June 2016.
