2016 – quite the year for Tech

2016

Well 2016 has been quite the rollercoaster of a year. My recent interview with the Artificial Lawyer (see my last blog post) goes into some detail on how we are building a distinctive legal / multidisciplinary practice at EY. The business is growing rapidly (we are approaching 2000 lawyers now globally) and the opportunity to develop the practice using the best technology available is really exciting.

It’s also been a lot of fun pulling together our UK & Ireland Fast Growth team and stitching that together with our 180 (or so!) other global tech start up and scale up teams.  We have now soft-launched our Fast Growth Platform for tech companies starting up, scaling up and going global. Some amazing client stories and deals already – more on that to follow in the New Year.

Before I head off for an Xmas break, here are some recent videos. My recent video and article on the latest global Tech M&A trends can be found at:
