UK law firm Shoosmiths is proud to support Tech London Advocates (TLA), a private sector led coalition of more than 10,000 expert individuals from the tech sector and the wider community.
TLA’s experts volunteer to champion London as a global tech hub and campaign to address the challenges facing tech companies in the UK.
The recently launched "London's Tech Manifesto 2021" is a series of recommendations for the next Mayor of London, to ensure London's tech companies stay thriving and the capital remains open to ideas, innovation and people during the 2020s.
In the manifesto, James Klein, head of technology sector at Shoosmiths gives a technology law expert's view:
"Despite the economic turmoil brought about by an unprecedented year, and the uncertainty of the Brexit aftermath, the UK continues to attract more VC investment than any other European country. Particularly in the sub-sectors or areas of Fintech, Artificial Intelligence, MedTech and Machine Learning, the UK is undoubtedly becoming a globally renowned hub for technology and innovation."
What does James say next that the UK tech sector needs to continue doing to stay thriving? Read more on page 15 of the manifesto here.
