Norton Rose Group enhances international technology capability in Middle East

11 November 2010


Norton Rose Group has further bolstered its international technology capability with the relocation to its Abu Dhabi office of London intellectual property and technology senior associate Dino Wilkinson.

Dino starts in the Abu Dhabi office with effect from 8 November 2010. He has been serving the Middle East market for several years and has advised government departments, Islamic and conventional financial institutions, telecoms operators, professional services organisations and other corporate clients throughout the region on a wide range of non-contentious IT, intellectual property (IP) and outsourcing matters. Going forward, Dino will continue to advise Norton Rose Group's varied client base in the region with a particular focus on supporting innovation-led businesses in communications, media, technology, life sciences, retail and brands.

Michael Rebeiro, Head of Technology, Norton Rose LLP said:

“We offer a fully global technology service and, in the last year, Norton Rose Group has advised on approximately US$3 billion worth of deals in the intellectual property (IP) and technology sector. Dino’s move to Abu Dhabi will enhance the international reach of our technology team and our ability to offer in-market expert advice for IT and IP legal matters. Dino’s expertise in sourcing arrangements, technology contracts and intellectual property licensing is valued by Middle East clients who have a growing focus on this area”.

Dino’s relocation to the Middle East follows the announcement last month of Norton Rose Group’s new Asian IP/Technology legal practice, headed by Gigi Cheah and Justin Davidson with a team of ten, headquartered in Hong Kong and working across 8 offices in Asia.
