DLA Piper named TMT Team of the Year for second time in 2021

DLA Piper has been named TMT Team of the Year at the Middle East Legal Awards 2021, hosted by Legal Week. The award recognises the firm’s continued strength in the region’s technology, media and telecommunications sectors (TMT).

The firm was also “highly commended” for its “Diversity Initiatives”, recognising the efforts made under the firm’s Leadership Alliance for Women and Gender Balance Network.

This is the second time this year that DLA Piper’s TMT team in the Middle East has been recognised by the market. In April 2021, the firm was named TMT Team of the Year at the Chambers Middle East Awards, hosted by Chambers & Partners.

DLA Piper’s Head of Intellectual Property and Technology in the Middle East, Jamie Ryder, commented: “We are proud to receive this award which demonstrates that our team continues to be the "go to firm" globally and in the Middle East for large-scale, business critical and next generation digital transformation projects. This win, alongside the recent Chamber’s & Partner’s TMT Team of the Year award, reinforces our position as the trusted advisor to our clients in the Middle East for TMT work. We are proud to be at the forefront of radical change in a time when digital evolution has never been as fast paced or as important as it is now, and we’re grateful that our clients continue to place great trust in us on their business-critical mandates”.
