Bryan Cave sets up global team targeting data centre clusters

The US firm is focusing on the burgeoning market for data centres globally.

Bryan Cave is launching the new data centre and cloud infrastructure team within its real estate client service group focusing on data centre developers, owners and users worldwide. The service is available globally and will target locations where data centres are clustered. Experts in the firm's data privacy and security, intellectual property, licensing, and IT outsourcing will be available to advise clients across the full range of  projects that fall within the data centre and cloud infrastructure realm.


'We are excited to make available to our clients a team of lawyers with such diverse experience within the data centre and cloud infrastructure field. Our team is composed of nearly 40 lawyers from a variety of transactional, litigation and regulatory practice backgrounds who collectively can offer the full spectrum of legal services and advice that our clients have come to expect and depend on,'  said the team’s leader, Jim Grice, partner in the Kansas City office. 'We recognise that the complexity and the stakes of this industry have continued to grow, and so too has the need for sophisticated counsel who have a true understanding of the issues that matter to our clients, the experience necessary to help them achieve their goals, and a track record of delivering results on the matters that mean the most to them.'
