Bird & Bird returns to DataCentres Europe for the 2013 conference


A specialist team of data centre legal advisors from Bird & Bird will be attending DataCentres Europe 2013 from 29-30 May in Nice, France.

Bird & Bird has been advising on data centre projects for over twenty years, working with developers, investors, operators, suppliers and end-users to provide expert commercial and legal advice throughout the lifecycle of their data centre projects. With a long track record of advising on data centre, IT infrastructure projects and technical real estate projects they are recognised industry leaders in providing legal services to the ICT sector, operating at the cutting edge of developments relating to the data centre community, including cloud computing, "big data" and energy efficiency.

Ed Cooke, partner and co-head of the international data centre advisory group Bird & Bird will be speaking on day two of the conference at the panel session 'Demystifying Site Selection'. The panel will explore the issues surrounding the site selection process which is often complex and challenging.

Ed Cooke commented: "We are delighted to be returning once again to DataCentres Europe. We find the conference to be extremely valuable in terms of knowledge sharing and meeting with our peers to discuss industry wide issues."

Taking place at the Acropolis convention centre DataCentres Europe brings together more than 1,000 enterprise users, specifiers and providers to discuss key themes including energy efficiency, cloud evolution, DCIM, convergence, finance and investment, market outlook and opportunities among other topics in the datacenter and cloud sector.
