DLA has launched a Scottish telecoms, media and communications (TMC) practice, with the hire of McGrigor Donald technology and intellectual property (IP) specialist John McKinlay

The firm wants to target a broad mix of clients, including tech suppliers either based or with operations in Scotland, and key telecoms players.
