Norton Rose has launched an IP and technology practice that will be headquartered in Hong Kong and offer services across Asia.
Hong Kong partners Gigi Cheah and Justin Davidson will head the practice, which will work across eight offices in Asia with a team of 10.
Cheah and Davidson will be responsible for expanding the group, reporting to head of Asia David Stannard.
Non-contentious IP and technology expert Cheah and Davidson, a contentious and non-contentious IP specialist, joined Norton Rose from DLA Piper’s Hong Kong office in July (20 July 2010).
“In the last year, Norton Rose Group has advised on approximately $3bn worth of deals in the IP/technology sector and also on a number of new and convergent technology matters including ecommerce, mcommerce, and other IT and communications related matters,” said Michael Rebeiro, head of technology at Norton Rose. “As Asia is an important market for international firms, we’re able to provide a fully global service offering from one source rather than clients seeking advice from multiple sources.”
In Asia Norton Rose has offices in Bangkok, Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.
