We take a broad view of what comprises the media and entertainment industry in the Middle East, reflective of the diversity of the creative and commercial content that is available, the modes of its delivery and the increasing convergence between means of communication and how people are entertained.

We look at 'technology' in three ways: first, there are technology vendors looking to sell or licence their hardware, software or services to customers in the Middle East; second, there are users and purchasers of technology, who come from a broad range of industries including manufacturing, education, health, property management, financial services and telecommunications; and third, we support our colleagues in the corporate, intellectual property and banking groups in connection with transactions and advice that they handle on behalf of technology companies.
