On the back of two strong financial years and a reaffirmed strategic commitment to support the innovation economy, international law firm Taylor Vinters has announced it will open an office in Oxford, where it already has an active client portfolio of venture-backed clients. It will follow this with the launch of a sales and consulting team in New York, which will provide a forward operating base for the firm’s substantial North America business.
“We want to work with the most exciting innovators and entrepreneurs.” said Matt Meyer, CEO of Taylor Vinters, “We exist to help the best and brightest make great things happen and I firmly believe that to achieve this, we have to be active in their key markets. This move marks a natural next step in that journey and reflects our existing client priorities.”
The openings build on the success of the firm’s current offerings in Singapore, London and Cambridge.
“By having a presence in the leading ecosystems of the global innovation economy, we’ll be in an even stronger position to seek out and act on opportunities to support businesses that are innovating around the world – from individuals and start-ups, to large corporates.” commented Ed Turner, Managing Partner, Taylor Vinters, “Not only that, we will be expanding our network of people – accessing new talent pools with a wealth and breadth of experience, and new outlooks, which will all add to the diversity of thought at Taylor Vinters, and help drive our business forward to greater success.”
The new offices in Oxford and New York will open over the coming months and see Taylor Vinters active in the relevant markets for both talent and clients in these key locations.
“In terms of focus, Oxford and New York will be at the sharp end of Taylor Vinters’ commercial strategy, with both offices looking to develop clients for the wider business, particularly in the areas of venture funding, IP and technology.” continued Matt Meyer, explaining the rationale for expansion, “The New York office will also allow the firm to expand its US focused consulting services offering, from legal tech deployment to global workforce management, and provide a solid foundation from which to grow Taylor Vinters’ EMEA advisory services for North American headquartered businesses.”
“By making these investments, we’re marking the beginning of a new, confident chapter in our journey, a chapter which yet again shows our commitment to focusing on clients and their markets.” concludes Matt, “We’re excited and motivated to continue our work on the ground in both Oxford and the US, and look forward to working with some of the leading entrepreneurs and innovators operating globally.”
