Lindsey Canning has joined global law firm White & Case LLP as a partner in its Global Intellectual Property Practice, in London. Canning will work closely with the Firm's Global Mergers & Acquisitions Practice, advising clients on intellectual property and technology matters.
"We have a growing base of clients which need ongoing IP support," said partner Mark Powell, White & Case's EMEA Regional Section Head for competition. "Lindsey's strength in privacy and cyber-security, coupled with her experience in international exploitation of IP, will be a valuable asset to the IP practice and our clients."
Canning, who joins the Firm from Freshfields, has extensive experience advising clients on intellectual property and technology matters, across a broad range of industry sectors, on M&A transactions and IPOs. Her practice also includes advising clients – both customer and supply side – on a wide range of commercial agreements, both in relation to business separations and on a standalone basis.
Oliver Brettle, Global Executive Committee member and London Office Executive Partner, said: "Lindsey's arrival supports the Firm's 2020 strategy which has a focus on growth in London as well as a focus on the technology industry."
"Technology focused issues and matters are an increasingly important part of our global business," said Aalok Sharma, Co-Head of White & Case's Global Technology Industry Group. "Not only are we seeing traditional technology companies globalize and grow at a faster and faster rate, we also are seeing business in other sectors – like the automotive and financial industries – develop new and innovative technology, requiring true experts with an understanding of the legal and business risks presented to help navigate this quickly evolving space. In this landscape, Lindsey's experience and specialist knowledge of IT transformation and IP is an important addition to our leading practice."
