WeWork, the global space community and services company, invited 30 legal advisors and alternative legal service providers from around the world to apply to be a part of its Legal Panel. The aim was to appoint a panel of preferred legal partners to advise WeWork during the next chapter of the company’s growth.
The Bird & Bird team will advise WeWork on issues relating to commercial, corporate, data privacy and cyber security matters. The work will be led by the co-head of the international Retail & Consumer sector group at Bird & Bird Graeme Payne (Commercial, London) and assisted by partners Ian Edwards (Commercial, London), Gabriel Voisin (Privacy & Data Protection, London) and Shing Lo (Corporate, London).
Graeme Payne, co-head of the international Retail & Consumer sector group at Bird & Bird says: "We are delighted to be selected to join the WeWork EMEA Legal Panel. The company's strong focus around using technology innovatively is perfectly in line with Bird & Bird's strategy. We look forward to supporting the team at WeWork in the months ahead."
