Watson Burton takes over IT boutique

Watson Burton has acquired two-partner firm Trevor Robinson & Co. The Surrey -based IT commercial boutique was described by Watson Burton strategy partner Gillian Hall as “punching above their weight”. She added: “They’re ex-Linklaters and ex-Coward Chance, have a hugely impressive client list and are supremely good practitioners.” Trevor Robinson & Co has advised software company SAP for 14 years and Brazilian oil giant Petrobras for more than 25 years.
