Waterfront’s Head of Commercial Law and Technology, Alison Berryman has just become an official Tech London Advocate (TLA), helping to support tech startups and more established businesses.
Tech London Advocates is a private-sector led network which helps early stage ventures get off the ground by removing business barriers. It also champions tech sectors where London has a competitive advantage and connects tech leaders, experts and investors across London and other tech hubs around the world.
Alison said, “Negotiating the legal world can be a steep learning curve for both startup and established tech businesses. This is where Waterfront can really help by offering specialist legal advice and support which not only helps entrepreneurs see their way through the mire, but also gives them a real competitive advantage. I’m looking forward to being part of an organisation which is so focused on supporting the growing tech sector in London.”
