WilmerHale was named a finalist for the esteemed UK Technology Innovation & Growth Forum’s “Technology Law Firm of the Year” award. The firm, along with only three other law firms, was shortlisted for this honor based on the strength of its corporate practice and its preeminence in the representation of technology companies.
WilmerHale has a consistent track record of successful and substantial work with European technology companies. According to VentureOne, in 2004, the firm was credited with having represented more venture-backed companies, and representing more European companies in venture capital transactions, than any other law firm in Europe. The firm was previously honored as the “UK Technology Law Firm of the Year” in this award category in 2001.
Now in its eighth year, The UK Technology Innovation & Growth Awards recognize the companies and individuals that have demonstrated the innovation and drive that is vital to the health and growth of the UK technology industry. The winner of the “Technology Law Firm of the Year” award, along with 12 other award categories, will be named at the annual awards dinner to be held in London on February 21, 2006.
