Olswang has strengthened its Technology and Sourcing offering in Asia with the joining of senior partner Ian Ferguson to its Singapore office, the international technology, media and telecoms (TMT) law firm announced today.
This new addition reflects a wider strengthening of the firm's international TMT offering with Technology and Data Protection partner Ross McKean joining the firm's London office in November.
Ian Ferguson will be joining Olswang's Asian base in Singapore after spending a little time in London.
According to Olswang, Ferguson, who joins on 1 October from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, has significant experience in outsourcing transactions, advising both suppliers and customers. He also advises on technology and communications infrastructure and integration projects, electronic banking, e-commerce and data transmission arrangements, as well as on technology related acquisitions, disposals and joint ventures.
Prior to Pillsbury, Ferguson spent more than 25 years at Allen & Overy where he was global leader of their TMT practice.
