Legal 500 EMEA recognises Gowling WLG for TMT and IP

14 April 2022

Gowling WLG UAE has been ranked for Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) and Intellectual Property (IP) in the 2022 edition of the Legal 500 EMEA.

This year saw the Technology team move up a band in the TMT rankings and the IP team once again placed among the top firms in the UAE. Alongside the practice rankings, the Technology team received praise for 'notable practitioner' Alexandre Brazeau, who is head of the Middle East Technology practice, and senior associate Sanjita Roy is named as a key lawyer. For IP, Jon Parker, head of the Middle East IP practice, maintains his recommendation as a 'leading individual'.

It has been an exciting 12 months for the firm as it undergoes a time of significant growth in size and client base. The Technology team welcomed senior associate Charlotte Wright and associate Afaf Alubaidi who increase the team's capacity to meet growing demands for services in the AI, digital transformation and FinTech space. Whilst the IP team saw the arrival of senior patent and tech transfer consultant Tamara El-Shibib and principal associate Sau Lin Wan to strengthen the team's renowned Trademark practice and introduce technology transfer and patent consultancy as a service.

Both teams were commended by clients in the Legal 500 research:

"The Gowling team really spend the time getting to know the clients and how their business works so that they can advise the team seamlessly."

"In our experience, Gowling WLG's whole Dubai team are not just bright, innovative, focused and committed, they are incredibly knowledgeable and some of the nicest people we have ever met in UAE."
