Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Jio Platforms Limited (Jio), a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited that has built an all-IP data and future-proof network with the latest 4G LTE technology, on its US$200 million investment in Glance Pte. Ltd. (Glance).
"Advising on Jio's investment in Glance adds to our impressive track record in the technology and digital services space in this region," said White & Case partner Jon Bowden, who co-led the Firm's deal team.

This experience will be integrated into the Pragati operating system, which has been co-developed by Jio and Google to bring live content on lock screens for millions of Jio users.
