Speaking about his interest tech and innovation, Tom says, "I've always had an interest in technology – from gaming as a child through playing with a Raspberry Pi and introducing myself to coding at university. I naturally gravitated towards technology-focussed transactions when I first joined Mishcon in 2017. Increasingly, I found myself working on matters which were more technical in nature, and I began to take a lead. I love working with forward-thinking, innovative clients to create new business models and reinvent their processes, all the while ensuring legal and regulatory compliance by design."
Congratulations to Tom and to all who were ranked.
