Tech City UK and Silicon Valley-headquartered Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati are proud to announce a transatlantic partnership to help UK companies looking at US markets.

The partnership is designed to support technology-driven UK companies looking to expand to and scale in the US, and to facilitate connections between the UK and US tech ecosystems.

As Tech City UK’s dedicated US partner, WSGR will collaborate to launch online resources for UK tech companies and investors on US expansion and fundraising. The materials will include guidance from seasoned US advisors who have worked with hundreds of UK and other non-US startup and growth-stage tech companies.

Also to be featured is a comprehensive collection of articles offering helpful tips for technology-driven companies seeking to enter the US market. This will include advice on whether to expand, raise investment capital, or pursue a key transaction – as well as videos on both US expansion and US fundraising.

The partnership will include support through US-focused workshops, roundtables, and office hours for companies on our Future Fifty and Upscale programmes, and for the broader tech community at large. WSGR also will collaborate with Tech North on similar US offerings for companies in the North of England.

“There is no better place in the world to start a tech company than the UK, and no better place to which to expand than the US,” said WSGR partner Daniel Glazer, a leader of the firm’s US expansion practice. “We are thrilled to partner with Tech City UK in support of the vibrant tech community in London and the UK more broadly.”

As an ‘anchor tenant’ of Silicon Valley with offices in virtually every major US tech hub, WSGR is uniquely well-positioned to help UK companies and investors navigate the US landscape and facilitate connections with key US stakeholders. The firm advises more startups on their venture transactions than any other US law firm and provides US legal counsel to thousands of entrepreneurs starting new businesses.

WSGR offers expertise concerning US company formation, equity structures, investor negotiations, employment matters, intellectual property rights, and other issues vital to US business growth and market success.
