Commercial and technology

We bring to bear deep sector experience and technical expertise to enable our clients to meet their business objectives.

Overview

We firmly believe that law does not just exist in a vacuum, but operates within a commercial context. Our lawyers understand that. We are proud to make our own extensive network of contacts work for our clients – helping them with funding introductions, introductions to trusted professional advisers, support with PR and introductions to other clients where there is a clear business opportunity.

Taylor Vinters’ 26-strong commercial and technology team has a long track record of helping some of the world’s leading and fastest-growing businesses.

We bring to bear deep sector experience and technical expertise to enable our clients to meet their business objectives. We also believe that as well as passion for our clients’ business (and technology), we have a distinct personality that enables us to align with our clients – and also don’t take ourselves too seriously and have a sense of humour (when appropriate!).

We recognise that science, transaction and project management skills are an essential part of what we do. Our team includes a PhD chemist, lawyers with degrees in marine biology and cybernetics/control Engineering, and a qualified PRINCE2 practitioner and, alongside our clients and other advisers, will co-ordinate the activities of the many parties that can sometimes be involved on a matter so that projects and transactions are delivered on time.

These lawyers are deployed across our three offices: our Cambridge office is at the heart of one of the world’s leading and most well established technology clusters; our London office is based on the edge of ‘Tech City’ within a couple of minutes’ walk from Old Street roundabout; and our Asia Pacific office is based in Singapore.
