Hogan Lovells recruits Mark Parsons to its corporate/commercial team
Hogan Lovells has recruited Mark Parsons into its corporate/commercial team in Hong Kong as a partner with a particular focus on complex commercial transactions and regulatory matters in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector.
Parsons was formerly a partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Asia where he led the intellectual property/information technology (IP/IT) practice and the firm’s work in the TMT sector.
Within a practice covering a wide range of commercial, regulatory and IP matters, he is particularly experienced in the negotiation of multi-jurisdictional outsourcing, technology licensing and distribution agreements, as well as advising on commercial matters in the internet and e-commerce space.
Parsons also has a well-developed practice advising on Asia’s fast-developing telecommunications, media and data privacy regulations.
A highly regarded TMT practitioner, he is listed in Chambers as a leading individual, where clients reported that ‘he has a very positive and solution-based approach to problems and is an excellent technician as well’.
He is expected to join around the end of January 2014.
